The trustees of The Sunshine Charity thank all our donors and well-wishers for placing their trust in our work and donating so generously to allow for three rounds of food distribution to the communities we serve during the strictly imposed curfew.                                                  

Though Sri Lankans have experienced numerous disasters both man-made and natural, from conflicts and insurgencies to tsunamis and landslides, the experience of living through the COVID-19 pandemic was an entirely new one, impacting us at different levels and in ways that we could not have imagined. Grappling with food shortages, living in remote areas with no access to the food supply chain and above all living below the poverty line, vulnerable families were practically hanging on a thread risking starvation. In addition, with day care centres and preschools closed during curfew, the kids were deprived of their daily nutritious meal. The Sunshine Charity reached out to the families of the children attending the Sunshine Centre to provide them with essential groceries and emergency food supplies based on their greatest need. Some of these families had multiple members but we did not forget any. Delivery essential food items to their doorstep was something they did not expect and were truly grateful to receive. We experienced humanity at its best and we honour these communities for their resilience and strength.
