STANDING TOGETHER WITH AMCHAM SRI LANKA
Our long-standing CSR partner, the American Chamber of Commerce in Sri Lanka, has come onboard once again, to stand with us amidst the current economic crisis. This partnership will support vulnerable communities in acquiring basic needs in the form of dry rations, that will be purchased from Keells Supermarkets and handed over by Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka in the DS Divisions of Galle, Kalutara, Colombo, Batticaloa, Killinochchi and Mullaitivu.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
- 150 of the most vulnerable families will be selected from each of the mentioned DS divisions, in collaborations with the Divisional Secretariat of each division.
- Each family will receive a package including dry rations in sufficient quantities for different amounts of time (i.e. one month, two months)
- Families with orphaned children, female-headed households, the elderly and families that depend on daily wage earners engaged in the construction sector (masons, laborers, brick makers etc.) will be prioritized.

About Habitat Sri Lanka’s Relief Efforts
Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka has experience in supporting communities following disasters, spanning over 15 years. HFHSL played a pivotal role in disaster response efforts in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, providing new homes to more than 5,000 families in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka.
Since then, HFHSL has responded to numerous natural and emergency disasters by supporting more than 8,600 families to build disaster resilient homes. Since 2009, following the end of the 30-year civil-war, HFHSL has supported the resettlement process of internally displaced families through mega-scale housing projects sponsored by the Indian Government and the European Union.
In 2011 and 2016, HFHSL responded to major Cyclones that resulted in landslides and floods, by distributing Emergency Shelter Kits, Hygiene Kits, well cleaning and constructing new disaster resilient homes for over 8,600 families in need.
HFHSL’s experience through its EU emergency cash transfer project has shown positive results in terms of health and food access. Furthermore, it demonstrated that the transfer provided some housing emergency assistance, while also promoting social or community collaboration.
