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 during the strictly imposed curfew, 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 the time, 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.
We 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 during the curfew.
