අපි අපිම තමයි - நாமெல்லாம் ஒன்றே- We Are One
Our Partnership with Kimbula Kithul; ‘Feed Fundraiser 4 Sri Lanka; as part of the We Are One Campaign
Our beautiful island home of Sri Lanka is facing an unprecedented economic crisis exacerbated by an ongoing political crisis. Our people face queues for fuel & gas, our currency is fallen, we have over 10-hour long power cuts, we face limited food access due to a badly implemented organic agriculture policy – and yet we have tried throughout to remain resilient & help each other and push for a local solution. But the most vulnerable amongst can wait no longer, and we are now in need to activate more largely at home and abroad, with diaspora Lankans & allies to ensure that the young and old do not go hungry or worse.
Our ‘Feed Fundraiser 4 Sri Lanka’ is a partnership between Sarvodaya, a community movement in place in the 1950s serving all Sri Lankans across the island built on rich asian values and sustainable living aligned with our mother earth, and our friends Kimbula Kithul – a women-powered small-holder farmer supporting agri-food startup going from SL to the world – and their global friends.
Our first goal is to raise USD 300,000 to supply 10,000 families with food packs across 8 districts throughout the island & set up 110 community kitchens in pre-schools to support child nutrition.
We are truly grateful for your consideration and support in this effort.
