Helping Poor Families During Pandemic

By Dr. Sumith Kahanda partnered with SamajaSathkarak.lk

Millions of people have lost their jobs during this Pandemic. There is are no exceptions to people in Sri Lanka. The Government does its best to help people but it won’t continue for long. However, they struggle. The most vulnerable people and families who are already below poverty line need a great deal of support for a foreseeable future. For a country like Sri Lanka, this is a huge burden. Low income families in Sri Lanka receive Rs 5000 each per month for two months during this COVID19 pandemic. This is an equivalent to $37 CAD or $27 US or 25 Euros. Average family size is 4. Imagine living off of $37 CAD per month.  It is really tough. We want to reach out to these  people to give them hopes. Our target is to raise $5000 CAD and help poor families in Sri Lanka. We can do that with your kind support. Together we can do it. Your dollar is worth more than you think. We know everyone is suffering one way or the other. Do your best to help a family during this pandemic. Bless you. Thanks.
