Thanks for donations SLRSA but a quick observation in the above write up is whether the donations “will elevate or aliviate” the suffering of the victims and affected communities. Please clarify the intention for the above donations and if alieviate is the correct word then the current PRO must be immediately called to attention for negligence.
