Hope > Covid

Many families have lost their sole breadwinner to Covid-19. Apart from the grief and shock they have to bear, they are now faced with the immediate issue of finding a source of income to support their need for food, water, education etc , while caring for their children.

The “Covid Relief Adopt a Family”  project aims to support the families by providing financial support of USD 50 per month, for a period of one year.

The donations will help the widows/widowers:

  • Provide meals for their family, until a sustainable job is found.
  • Start a business to sustain the family long-term.
  • Support children’s education until they recover financially.

We have many families who have registered for this programme, and over 200 wanting to join. CAL requires community support and donations to assist these families, and we will work with them to find employment or start a business.

Contact us on childaction@sltnet.lk if you would like to join this project.
