Prior Assistance in Sri Lanka



Crisis Response in Sri Lanka

Flooding in 2011 caused need in some of the communities where we are working.  We helped 300 of those families through food aid packets which helped replace food and cooking items they had lost.

In times of emergency, relief supplies can include things like:

  • locally accessed and appropriate food relief
  • child safety
  • water
  • shelter
  • sanitation
  • household needs
  • livelihood protection

To donate to ERDO's crisis response fund, and equip us to quickly respond during times of emergency, please click here>>
