Cricket Aid was established in 2004, following the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami, and most recently was resurrected with the aim of raising funds for the eradication of the Chronic Kidney Disease pandemic that is rampant in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka.

Committed to bringing assistance in times of national disaster Cricket Aid recently was able to collect and distribute close to Rs. 10 million worth of assistance to those affected by the catastrophic floods in Sri Lanka.

Cricket Aid believes that it is the duty and obligation of the sport to give back to the people who support it with passion and commitment and in the very essence of the statement that we are truly 1Team and 1Nation.
