The dire economic conditions in Sri Lanka have impoverished many residents. SSSIO volunteers recently served food to over 1,500 people to alleviate their suffering. They have also delivered dry rations to more than 1,000 needy families every month since July 2022.
SSSIO volunteers initiated a drinking water project in Karipatamuripu village of the Mullaitheevu district. Currently, the village does not have drinking water, and people must travel far for drinking water. As a result, many people suffer from kidney-related diseases. The water project was completed in 2022, and an overhead water tank was also constructed for an elderly couple unable to fetch water from a distant well.
