Process for the donation:

  • MUG will send the goods directly to the Health Ministry, where the medicines will be cleared by customs.
  • Health Ministry staff shall give immediately attention to the medicines as we are donating surplus medicines with short expiry dates.
  • Mr. Sathik Mohamed from Little Aid will collect the medicines and transport them safely to Vavuniya.
