Sri Lanka is currently in the midst of an extreme economic crisis. In what has been described by the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremesinghe, as a complete economic collapse, the country, and its citizens, can no longer afford or access essential amenities. Ongoing shortages of food, fuel, medicine and power, in combination with civil unrest and shrinking public services, has had a dire effect upon the people of Sri Lanka.
Your gift to Anglican Aid’s Sri Lanka Crisis Appeal will provide basic necessities and free medical services to vulnerable members of the community. Taking a longer term approach, we are also supporting sustainable projects which will equip low-income people to prepare for a prolonged financial crisis.
Your donations will help low-income people to survive this crisis. This includes many ministry families impacted by depleted church giving.
The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney, Kanishka Raffel shared this statement on the crisis:
“It is a deep grief to me that the country of my heritage, Sri Lanka, should be facing the kind of crisis which is unfolding. To know that millions of people are going without basic necessities arouses Christian compassion within us and I am glad that our Anglican agencies are able to respond so quickly to this emergency.
Galatians 6 says we should do good to all people as we have opportunity, especially to the household of faith. Here is an opportunity where even a small amount, given prayerfully, can do much good.”
