Dr Sam was born in Sri Lanka and runs city-based charity Hope Outreach UK to help poor and needy people there.

Hope Outreach has carried out projects over the past 35 year to reconcile communities, foster understanding and promote tolerance.

“I am devastated,” said Dr Sam this week. “The beautiful paradise island has been convulsed yet again by bloodshed from which it shall take a long time to recover.”

He plans to visit Sri Lanka next month with Rev Steve Nuth of Woburn.
