UN resident coordinator makes an appeal for SL | Sri Lanka News


UN Resident Coordinator in Srilanka Hanaa Singer said Sri Lanka needs her friends to show solidarity to address shortages in food and medical supplies as Sri Lanka is facing a severe socioeconomic crisis that impacts all its citizens.

She said Sri Lanka's gains in healthcare, education and poverty alleviation are being threatened by the current crisis.

” We need your support to provide food security and medicines to the vulnerable people in Sri Lanka,” she urged.

Lives are lost and families are distraught as surgeries are postponed. Essential drugs, surgical consumables and laboratory items are out of stock at the national level. 

According to UNICEF, 70% of households have reduced their food consumption, primarily due to the rising cost of food, and 73% of households have had their incomes either curtailed or reduced. (DSB)
