This past year, Sri Lanka faced the worst economic crisis since its independence in 1948. Millions of people faced shortages in food, fuel, cooking gas, and medicines - creating a humanitarian emergency in which poverty rates doubled and 28% of the population struggled with inadequate food supplies and hunger.
International Relief Teams responded by shipping emergency food to food distribution centers for children. Thanks to our generous donors, 132,722 meals have been provided since 2022. Our partner, Community Concern Sri Lanka, was able to serve lentils and nutritional meals to 180 children who live below the poverty line every weekday through their feeding program.
