Summary

The project will help feed and sustain 3000 poor and vulnerable families in Sri Lanka over the next couple of months and will help keep families together and prevent abandonment of children into harmful orphanages. The poorest are trapped between hunger and threat of the COVID19 virus, which could spread quickly in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. We will provide medicine, nutritional food parcels to prevent malnutrition, antibacterial soaps to ensure hygiene and seeds for sustainability.

Challenge

There are currently thousands of Sri Lankan families living in poverty who rely on a daily wage to feed their families. Strict indefinite curfews were enforced due to COVID-19, and no work means no income and no food to put on the table. These people are trapped between the threat of the virus and hunger and live in unsanitary conditions in multigenerational homes. Vulnerable children are suffering malnutrition and are at high risk of abandonment into harmful orphanages that we want to avoid.

Solution

TFT will provide nutritious food parcels comprising rice, dhal, vegetables, eggs, milk powder, flour, sugar, biscuits, medicines, seeds, and soap to pregnant mothers, and feed families of six for a week, to keep vulnerable children at risk of abandonment fed and out of harmful orphanages. At our food parcel collection, we will raise awareness on the importance to reduce plastic, personal hygiene, and the importance of community responsibility to reduce the spreading of COVID19 virus.

Long-Term Impact

The longterm impact will keep 3000 poor disadvantaged families healthy and together, and prevent thousands of vulnerable children from being sent into harmful orphanages which are known to be emotionally and physically damaging. After the pandemic crisis, work, and schools (where children receive a daily meal) will resume and families will be in good physical condition, and able to get their lives back on track and become sustainable once again.
