Children in Crisis

Because food on the table was not sufficient, Safia's mother could not produce enough milk to breastfeed Safia. Safia was very weak and could not move a lot. World Vision's mobile health clinic provided timely aid. With regular check-ups and nutrition packages, Safia was able to recover.

"As I could not afford to fulfill the needs of my family, my eldest daughter worked in a restaurant to have more income and the younger one worked on household chores.”

World Vision is deeply concerned about children who are the silent sufferers of the current socio-political and economic crisis in Sri Lanka, compounded by the aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic and a terrorist attack that has severely crippled the country.
