Archbishop of Colombo Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith has acknowledged the assistance rendered by all parties who stood in solidarity with the victims of the Easter Sunday massacre.

Issuing a statement today (20), Cardinal Ranjith said that he is thankful to everyone who expressed their solidarity through e-mails, letters, monetary contributions and various propositions and offers of help given to the victims.

“I am so thankful to all of you for taking the time and effort to write to me personally. I also appreciate all the encouragement and commendations that you have given me. I have tried my best to reply to each and every one of you, but find it very difficult due to time constraint. I am really sorry about this and trust you will understand,” the statement said.

“I also wish to convey my wholehearted gratitude to all those who have generously sent monetary contributions towards the Relief Fund established to help the families of the deceased and for the rehabilitation of the injured,” the statement added.
