My story

[p]COVID-19 Sri Lanka Appeal[/p][p]Now we have contributed to the emergency appeal to feed a family in Sri Lanka for a week, we are responding to the latest need by helping with a longer term project which is in two parts. The total lockdown with strict curfews in place has now been lifted in Sri Lanka in most districts so people are more able to get out to buy food. Wearing of face masks outside of the home is now compulsory. [/p][p]The fear now is that families will begin to suffer serious malnutrition and will become particularly vulnerable if/when they come into contact with the Covid-19 virus. On top of this, there is a need for hand sanitiser/soap. In response to this I am raising funds for up to 80 girls in a refuge in Kandy to be provided with the basic materials to make reusable masks and hand sanitiser, as well as delivering a nutrition and home gardening programme in the more remote tea plantation communities of Kirimetiya and Pupuressa.[/p][p]I totally appreciate we are all struggling with the pandemic here in the UK and that we are focussing on our own and local community needs and therefore this is not an ideal time to be asking for charity abroad. But, these families need just the bare essentials to get them through this next stage of their crisis to help prevent them from catching the virus. As I always say and have witnessed personally, just a little goes such a long way in Sri Lanka and your contribution, however small, will certainly help reduce the spread of Covid-19 in Sri Lanka and help save lives and take pressure off their limited hospital facilities.
