Food distribution in Sri Lanka

SCI India - Karnataka group relief fund

Nowadays, Sri Lanka is going through a massive economic crisis. There are shortage and increasing of prices on fuel, gas, electricity, medicine and also food which eventually leads to a social unrest. Therefore, SCI Sri Lanka decided to organise a food distribution campaign for the most needy families without any discrimination, among all ethnic and religious groups all over the country.
