Children in Sri Lanka are dying of starvation, and almost no one is talking about it!

This small country in South Asia isn’t making headlines or showing up all over social media. But over the past few months, a massive economic crisis has left 7 out of 10 families unable to buy enough food.

“Those who were having three meals have decreased to two,” our partner said. “While those who were eating two meals have declined to one.”

Sri Lanka already had one of the highest childhood malnutrition rates in South Asia. In fact, one pastor reported that a year ago, it was almost unheard of to get through a morning service without one or two children collapsing from hunger.

But now it’s even worse.

“Due to the present situation in the country, five to seven children faint during morning assembly as these children have not had any food,” our partner said.
