.- The International Catholic Association Aid to the Church in Need said it will donate $316,000 to help victims of the tsunami in Asia, with $140,000 going to the four hardest hit dioceses in Sri Lanka.

Aid to the Church in Need said the Archdiocese of Colombo and the Dioceses of Trincomalee-Batticaloa, Jaffna and Galle would each receive $46,000.

Likewise, $65,000 will be donated to the Diocese of Port Blair, which includes the islands of Andaman and Nicobar.  Another $65,000 will go to two archdioceses in the Indonesian province of Aceh, in northern Sumatra.

The organization’s secretary general, Antonia Willensen, said donations would be sent through various channels of the Church, in coordination with local bishops.  She called on the organization’s benefactors to be generous in assisting the people of Southeastern Asia with their urgent needs.
