‘I can’t even begin to imagine the shock and heartache the family must be going through’ writes Rebecca, COO of Wings of Hope in Sri Lanka.
‘I saw the picture of this lady crying over the dead body of her husband. He went out to get diesel for his truck and while standing in the queue in the heat for one hour he just collapsed and died. He was younger than Adrian. I couldn’t even begin to imagine the shock and heartache the family must be going through. The father who went out in the hope of getting fuel drops dead.’
Grateful mothers receiving emergency food relief
from the Wings of Hope Project
Each time I speak with Rebecca, I hear the food security situation in Sri Lanka continues to deteriorate each day. Global Citizen reports:
‘Sri Lanka’s political turmoil and economic crisis have brought about a catastrophic food shortage, with the nation’s 21 million residents now forced to pay triple for basics like rice, sugar, lentils and milk powder. Over 500,000 citizens were pushed into poverty in the country over the past two years.’
Will you help feed a family for just $26?
Wings of Hope families gathering to receive emergency food relief earlier this year
Food, fuel, milk powder – all are scarce and the price is exorbitant for families. In the midst of this crisis, the team at Wings of Hope have responded already with relief aid through ration packs for 160 families, and Rebecca has requested funds for packs for a further 260 families in eight outreach areas. These packs have 10kg rice, 5kg flour, 1kg dhal, 500g soya, 500g chickpeas and one nutritional supplement per child. This will help a family for one week.
They may never be able to thank you personally, but they will be immensely grateful to you. Malar, one of the mothers at the Wings project wrote….
“I opened my rice bucket and it was empty. I sat on the floor and placed a hand on my forehead. What am I going to give my children when they return home from school tired and hungry? I’ve gone beyond my credit limit at the nearest store. I just sat there and cried when I received a message from the Parents Association. I was asked to come that morning to collect a dry ration pack. I have no words to express how I felt. I am of another religion but at that moment I thanked God for looking out for my family. My children would have had no food that day and the next if not for the ration pack that I received. I was able to feed my children for many days and my husband was able to earn some money in the meantime to purchase more groceries. Thank you very much for these ration packs.”
