Aid for Sri Lanka Crisis

Sri Lanka is facing the worst economic crisis in its history and needs your urgent support.
 
Sri Lanka is in crisis, and a majority of the people who call this country home are in imminent danger of starvation. The Sri Lankan people have been met with 13+ hour power cuts, dangerous shortages of much needed food and medicine, and a scarcity of healthcare supplies needed for medical surgeries and procedures. The hardest hit are those living at or below the poverty line and whose day to day income has been severely affected by these power cuts and supply shortages. 
 
This dire situation was triggered partially by the impact of Covid-19, which battered the economy and caused mounting foreign debts, in addition to rising inflation, and economic mismanagement by the government of Sri Lanka.
 
As a result, many Sri Lankan families cannot afford basic food and medical necessities. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards local community organizations supporting people of ALL ethnic backgrounds in Sri Lanka. 
 
All funds will be split and transferred amongst verified Sri Lankan community-based organizations listed below: 

Foundation of Goodness 
Educate Lanka 
Care Station 


Each grocery pack distributed costs ~15 USD each and can provide food for 1 family for 3-4 weeks. 

100% of your donation will go towards helping those in need, and not towards any administrative costs.
SLANE will be working with these Sri Lankan organizations to ensure these funds go towards those who are hardest hit by this crisis and desperately need your support. 
 
Additional community-based organizations in Sri Lanka will be added to the above list—please check back to see your funds at work. 

To our Sri Lankan community members, families, and friends all over the world—Sri Lanka needs you now more than ever.


This fundraiser is organized by the Sri Lanka Association of New England (SLANE) – 501 (c)(3) organization and has no political affiliations.
