Focus on Sri Lanka

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.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Sri Lanka

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

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.
