Over the last 2 years, there have been two events in Sri Lanka that have been rather difficult for the people. They had the Easter terror bombings that completely stopped tourism and halted travel for a long time. At the end of 2019, the things where looking brighter as tourists returned.

All went well until March when the global Covid-19 epidemic halted all travel worldwide. This impacted Sri Lanka greatly since many families’ daily wages rely on the tourist industry.


With the tourist gone now, there is no income, no money, and this no food on the table. Any chance to earn anything is gone. Some children have fainted in hunger. People are starving due to no income to buy food, cook and prepare meals.

I have gathered a few local people that buy food and distribute for now in Kirinda and Tissamaharama, but if this goes well, we want to expand doing this. All is done by volunteers we trust.

The families include labours, single parents, and infants. They are in need of daily essentials to cook.

Currently we have distributed 100kg of rice as a start. All donations go directly into buying food and i will provide updates with photos with when we do work in the area.

Please give a helping hand to support in our work.

(PS: We don't hand out any money directly, we buy and distribute food and other needs to ensure money are used to what they are donated to)
