Message from our President
The Australia Sri Lanka Medical Aid Team (AuSLMAT) was formed in the aftermath of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami. While initially the focus was to assist with the crisis situation; in the following years AuSLMAT has continued to offer ongoing assistance to the poor and disadvantaged communities of Sri Lanka and to help bolster the local health services.
The team has a strong focus towards capacity building of local health professionals and services within these disadvantaged communities.
AuSLMAT is made up of a multi-disciplinary team including doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, scientists and many family and friends who support our efforts. We all enjoy our time in this beautiful country and have made lifelong friendships and connections.
All team members offer their time on a voluntary basis and pay all their own expenses.
The funds raised here in Australia, are used to directly supply medical equipment and resources for communities in Sri Lanka.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or offers of help.
- Dr Quintus De Zylva
