A holistic rural development model that seeks to bridge the gap between the urban and rural communities in Sri Lanka via 10 empowerment divisions across 900+ villages island-wide reaching over 68,000+ beneficiaries annually, free of cost.
As at the end of June 2022, the Feed the Hungry Phase 4 draws to a close, with 4943 essential grocery packs (valued at Rs. 5000 each) delivered to over 238 rural villages. This has benefitted more than 22,600 Sri Lankans who are struggling to afford meals due to the prevailing crisis situation.
We wholeheartedly thank all our donors whose kindness has brought immense relief to those struggling in Sri Lanka. We would like to specially recognise Help Hunger UAE & Global for their kind contributions, which enabled hundreds of rural families to have essential food items across the island.
Under the new phase, 2486 packs (at Rs. 3500) have been scheduled for the Upcot, Puttalam, Mawella, Mattakkuliya, Kurunegala, Nikaweratiya, island-wide VHE Centres, Negombo, Galle District, Jinanada Elders’ Home, Nethsarasevena Special Needs Home and Anula Girls’ Home (Orphanage).
