Again a nationwide 24-hour lockdown for several weeks. Our field work has again been forced to stop. We had just started working with 2 teams in 2 provinces. The teams are not allowed to cross the province borders and are therefore obliged to stay at the current project location. We cannot supply materials. The men can’t go back to their families. It’s waiting and waiting…
There is no real vaccination in Sri Lanka yet…..
At the KSLF office in Negombo we are daily approached by families, social workers for support through food packages. Many poor families have nothing to eat, the need is great! KSLF regularly provides food packages for the poorest families in Negombo.
1 food package / 1 family / 1 week costs 4.000 slr (€ 17).
