Sri Lanka has a unique country profile. The World Bank calls it a success story, but it continues to work to achieve stability in certain areas:
Because of its coastal location, natural disasters like floods remain a high risk
Nearly 92% of the population is literate (World Bank)
Concerns continue about sourcing sex trafficking in the nation (CIA World Factbook)
Migrants from the nation to other areas may face debt labor or forced bondage
With all this considered, one thing remains clear: The people of Sri Lanka are resilient and, with the support of donors like you, families in need there can access opportunities to break the chains of poverty and move toward success.
We Need YOUR Help
As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of better Sri Lanka a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.
$100 can provide food aid for a family
$225 can provide vital relief to emergency survivors
$500 can implement livelihood programs to set up women-led households for success
$1,000 can help build innovative water and sanitation facilities
In 2004, the Islamic Relief family began work in Sri Lanka. This was in response to the catastrophic Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred that year.
Here’s a just sampling of our recent effort for families in need across Sri Lanka
Delivering urgent aid to survivors of natural disasters
Providing orphans and their families with access to health care, food, and more
Sending vital food packages to those suffering from starvation
