Response to Flooding & Landslides in Sri Lanka Underway
June 15, 2021 | 9 a.m.
Convoy of Hope is currently responding to severe storms in Sri Lanka. Heavy rainfall has triggered widespread flooding and deadly mudslides. According to the government’s Disaster Management Center, the storms have affected at least 245,000 people and displaced more than 5,000. At least 14 fatalities have occurred to date.
Many locals relied on the now-flooded land to grow crops. With produce and income in short supply, food security is now a concern for many farmers and all who relied on them.
Working with local partners, Convoy of Hope is distributing food and other essentials to affected people. To support Convoy of Hope as we respond to this disaster, click here.
