CORD distributes emergency dry rations to poor families in the North

CORD Sri Lanka took immediate action during the national emergency to ensure poor families with children are provided with much needed essential food items. The corona outbreak has a devastating impact on the lives of most vulnerable families living under extreme poverty conditions in the remote villages of  Jaffna and Kilinochchi district in the Northern province of Sri Lanka.

Daily wage earners are severely affected by the lockdown and have lost their livelihoods and food security. Because of the island wide school closures, the children have lost their daily meals that they depended on. CORD will continue to support these families till the country recovers from this pandemic.

Also we hope to provide a Hygiene kit to these families consisting of face masks, hand wash liquids, soap and will also enclose an awareness handbill.

We solicit your generous donation to save the poor families from this deadly virus.
