    Hi I’ve been trying to transfer some money through my online SCB account but when I try to add you guys as beneficiaries I keep getting the message. *ERROR* : Account Not Exist.

    What do I do? Is there any other way I can send you the money? Its a paltry sum but I guess every bit counts?

    I have sent numerous requests to my friends abroad and home for support. How much do u need and how much u have collected. I fear for all the crew including my nephew Nalindra Wakwella /Cheif Engineera whose duaghter is crying for her father. Do inform me about the out come.Shall send some money soon.
    Keep up your good work. Families of Sri Lankan crew do not have much money and people are scared to transfer money to unknown people.

    • Thank you for your message Indra.

      We are still collecting the balance of USD 1.7 million dollars. People have been very supportive of campaign but considering the amount, we still have a long way to go.

      We are trying to do our best to secure the release of the entire crew.

      Please keep praying for the crew.

      Appreciate your support!

      (You can collect the money and deposit into the account details on the page through your branch)

    I have been trying to send money to you from rawalpindi using my ATM’s interbank money transfer facility, but it keeps saying that the account number is invalid. the machine says that the number has to have the following format; branch number-account number-suffix. I think the number you have listed is missing the suffix. can you please check the number?

    I am trying to transfer some money through my SCB online banking transfer but it says the account number does not exist. Please let me know the correct account number so i can help make a difference too. Reading the forum above i see other people have encountered the same problem. It would be a good idea to check with NIB Bank what the correct account number is which should be used for online bankings transfers. Thanks !

    I am trying to send money via paypal but it requires either an email address or a phone number. Please have a look at this link and let me know the necessary details…

    • Hi, We are facing some technical difficulties with paypal, in the meantime we would be ever grateful if you could make a transfer through your bank or Western union under Shahnaz Jawaid’s name. Please let us know if you have any suggestions. We are really running short of time. We were able to get an extention from pirates as we could not raise the funds required.

        I read that Mr. Edhi was collecting donations for Save M.V Albedo. I know that they have offices in all most all major cities. May be you can work out an arrangement with them and have the funds sent to Edhi. This is just off my head…but I hope it helps and you get to collect the amount in time and that the family members aboard the ship come back home safe and sound. Inshallah!

  16. Please let us know how much more money is needed and keep us updated

  17. Claire

    Hi there,

    Trying to make a donation through PayPal, but there are no links or details.

    Can you pls help?

    Thanks, 🙂

    • Hi Claire,
      I am so sorry but the paypal option is no longer available. You can made a donation through western union or transfer money into the bank (details are listed the website). For western union I believe you can use the Account Holder Name :Shahnaz Jawaid and give them the bank details. If you require any more information please do let me know.

  18. I think you should work out with Paypal, many people are unable to send money coz of this problem.

  19. Fus

    Please set up paypal a/c asap, I am sure many ppl will find it convenient to send money through it.

  20. Fus

    Also is there a contact number, I can try sendingmoney through Pakremit but the bank check has to be picked up from the NBP branch. Please provide a phone number and name of the person with ID card. Email me @

    can you please confirm how much more amount needs to be collected and wat is the update on the situation.

  24. Adil

    hi, where is the donate through PayPal link?

  25. Adeel

    Assalamu aliakum.

    Have you collected the funds? How much is still left? Please update.
    I have been trying to send you a donation from my ATM and from my online fund transfer facility, but in both cases the funds transfer failed with the message that the account number is invalid.

    Can you please confirm the account number and what the exact input should be when transferring online from Bank Al Habib. The only help that I get on the transfer screen is:
    “Please Enter 15 Digits NIB Bank account number. The layout Old (AAAABBBBBBBCCCC) & New For 7 Digit “.

  26. Furqan Masood

    I tried to transfer funds from My ABL online webiste, it asked me
    “Please enter 15 digit account number following the layout BBBBAAAAAAASSSS”
    but you have only provided 13 digits. I spoke to your back as well they said add “00” after the br code, but that did not work either. Can you clear this out for me ?
