Sri Lanka situation

Daily power cuts of 12 hours mean that work using technology is impossible. Computers run out of power, networks stop running, phones don't work and working indoors is like working in a steam room.
The shortage of fuel is heartbreaking. Queues and queues of people with plastic cans to collect fuel for cooking - queues of motorcycles, queues of three-wheelers, queues of lorries, queues of buses and queues of vans.
Our Ocean Stars driver has to queue for 7 hours to fill up with diesel so that our local staff, and John and Dilanee, can visit our projects and support our communities who are at breaking point.
In these challenging global times, if you feel you are able to support our work and alleviate the suffering of our Ocean Stars communities, please visit our website and make a donation. Any donation big or small is much appreciated.
We hope for a better future for Sri Lanka soon.
