RIDMA Foundation Inc

From our families to theirs, so that they can continue to see another tomorrow.

As COVID ravages in all corners of Sri Lanka, thousands of fellow Sri Lankans are battling for their lives and the health sector is being pushed to its limits like never before.

As a collective of Sri Lankan organisations in Western Australia, we have raised $19,684 to assist life saving efforts in Sri Lanka and ease suffering.

The funds collected were utilised to provide urgently needed medical equipment such as pulse oximeters, multi-para monitors, CPAP machines, ECG monitors, BIPAP machines, non-rebreather masks and piped medical oxygen to a number of hospitals across Sri Lanka. These items have been identified and recommended by the Sri Lankan Medical Association of Western Australia (SLMAWA) as vital aid equipment. 

If you would like to fund a project please contact RIDMA Foundation (an Australian Registered Charity) by emailing

The utilisation of all donations raised will be done in a completely transparent manner. Information regarding your donations in action will be updated on the appeal website
