Project Relief

Sri Lanka has been facing significant challenges in recent times, starting with the outbreak of COVID-19 and followed by economic instability, which has had a profound impact on communities across the country. The rising cost of living has made it difficult for many people to meet their basic needs, with many unable to afford even a single meal each day. This has created a dire situation for many individuals and families, highlighting the urgent need for effective solutions to be put in place.

Padaviya isn’t just any town; it’s a place where every corner tells a story of struggle and determination. Here, families make out a living through fishing and farming, but their main incomes barely cover the basics. Children study under the scorching sun, dreams of brighter futures overshadowed by the harsh reality of poverty. Mothers yearn to provide for their children, while fathers juggle multiple jobs to make ends meet. But amidst these challenges, what struck us the most was the unwavering spirit of the people. Their resilience was the ray of hope amidst adversity. 

With a deep understanding of Padaviya’s needs, we embarked on a mission to create lasting change.


While providing immediate relief through weekly lunch packs is a step in the right direction, our organization is committed to finding a more sustainable solution to the issue of hunger in Sri Lanka. To this end, we are collaborating with several churches in Colombo to establish a weekly soup kitchen for school children in the area. By providing nutritious meals on a regular basis, we aim to ensure that the children have the energy and nourishment they need to grow, learn and thrive. This long-term initiative is part of our ongoing efforts to address the root causes of poverty and food insecurity in the region, and we are dedicated to making a lasting difference in the lives of those we serve.

Based on the situational analysis conducted, the decision has been made to fund a greenhouse project aimed at boosting the community’s livelihood. The project will provide the resources and support needed to establish a greenhouse where the community can grow and sell their own scotch bonnet produce.
This will create a new source of income for the community, which will in turn be utilized for the welfare of the community itself. This project represents a sustainable solution that will not only provide immediate benefits, but also contribute to the long-term development of the community. By giving the community the tools and resources to improve their own lives, this project will help break the cycle of poverty and create a brighter future for generations to come.
