Emergency Appeal: Sri Lanka Flooding
A food crisis looms for Sri Lanka following recent devastating floods. As many as 350,000 persons have had to flee to displacement camps, according to the London-based Guardian newspaper.
CWS is supporting efforts of partner Christian Aid, which is responding in Sri Lanka. A report this week said: "Christian Aid partners continue to address the immediate needs of 5,901 families in communities in the affected districts of Trincomalee and Batticoloa by providing immediate relief assistance of food and non-food items."
