Summary

Surviving Tough Times As food prices soar and staple foods become unaffordable, it is always the vulnerable communities who are impacted most. During these times of hardship, The Sunshine Charity will focus on helping the 50 children attending the Sunshine Day Care and Preschool to survive malnutrition by addressing their nutritional needs.

Challenge

The organization will bridge the nutritional deficiency among vulnerable children living in the Eastern Province. According to UNICEF Sri Lanka Humanitarian Situation Report from November 2022 Sri Lanka is "amidst an acute economic crisis with worsening food insecurity forecasted between October 2022 and February 2023; an estimated 6.2 million people (28 percent of the total population in the country) are moderately acute food insecure, while 66,000 people are severely acute food insecure."

Solution

In addition to the one wholesome meal provided daily and a glass of milk three times a week, the menu will be enriched with supplementary foods such as grains and pulses. Chickpeas, green gram, lentils, as well as iron rich vegetables will be prioritized in the menu. By doing so, the financial burdens of their parents will also be reduced.

Long-Term Impact

Owning the land on which the Sunshine Day Care & Pre-school is located has contributed immensely to achieve a long-term impact within the community. This has allowed the organization to be sustainable. Providing the greatest needs of the children, the direct beneficiaries and the wider community, the indirect beneficiaries, it is considered one of the safest spaces for their children to learn, create and grow.
