Sivashanker’s Xmas Campaign
This year Suriya, Sarenya and Sahdana have decided that they would prefer donations to Palmera rather than Christmas presents. They want to help people less fortunate than them.
Sri Lanka’s north has a number of the country’s absolute poorest. They struggle to put food on the table, find work opportunities and access support services. They aren’t ready to be connected with the market; right now, they’re worried about sheer survival.
We have identified the 150 of the poorest in selected areas and will work with them over 2 years to graduate them out of absolute poverty. Their immediate needs will be addressed while also investing in their longer-term training, development and planning. It helps families secure the basic things like food and access to healthcare, but it also aims to build their financial resilience through savings.
The Sivashankers thank you from the bottom of their hearts for your support.
