Tens of Thousands of poor and vulnerable people in the North & East of Sri Lanka are going hungry and starving due to the financial crisis
Sri Lanka is going through a terrible financial crisis which is impacting poor & vulnerable people, with the cost of food being exorbitant and resulting in thousands of people starving or missing meals.
Serendip have recently launched ‘The Emergency Hunger Appeal Project’ to ensure that we can provide these poor and vulnerable people with dry food packages to enable them to eat. We have calculated that it costs 3000 Rupees (approximately £6) to provide dry food for 1 person for 2 weeks. The dry food rations consists of rise and daal to enable a basic meal.
We want to help the starving Tamil people in the North and East by targeting 3 areas within Mullathivu where we there is significant food shortages and starving poor people.
Our target for the first half of 2022 is to provide this support of 1000 dry food rations, with £6 per ration – and therefore a target of £6,000
So far we have provided 120 food packages through individual sponsors.
