Since the economic crisis, families and children in Sri Lanka are still facing a harsh reality amidst the worst economic crisis the country has seen, compounded by the lasting impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Save the Children has been responding by providing support to the most vulnerable families and children in need of immediate assistance, which includes building resilience within communities in Sri Lanka, so that they are better able to respond and cope with shocks. 

Resilience Building Initiatives

Through our 'Building Resilience of at-risk Communities in Sri Lanka' programme, funded by USAID's Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), we have been able to reach over 29,000 families, by contributing to enhancing disaster preparedness, strengthen community-level support systems, and improve access to essential life-saving services during and after disasters.
