Two minutes of silence for 15th tsunami commemoration

The Disaster Management Centre (DMC) urged to observe 2 minutes silence from 9.25 am to 9.27 am to commemorate all those who lost their lives due to the Tsunami.

An estimated 226,000 people lost their lives in the disaster, prompting authorities to later rename December 26– Boxing Day - ‘National Safety Day’.

In addition to the two minutes of national silence, religious observations and awareness programs will also be held at Disaster Management Centres at all 25 districts.

National Programme on National Safety day will be held on December 26 in Paraliya, Galle District in front of the Tsunami Monument at 9.00 am onwards with the participation of the tri-forces, police and the general public.
