Economic Crisis Appeal - June 2022

Ocean Stars Trust is launching a June 2022 appeal to raise funds for our communities who are experiencing unprecedented hardship due to the current economic situation in Sri Lanka. There are daily power cuts which impact on the quality of day-to-day life. Fuel shortages mean that people have to queue up to 8 hours to fill up their motor bikes and then they are restricted as to how much fuel they are allowed to buy. Inflation is running officially at over 35%, with the price of many basic commodities rising far in excess of that rate. Food shortages and lack of cooking gas and kerosene oil means our communities are desperately in need of help. Thank you for your support.

About Volunteering Volunteer Feedback

"I will never forget this trip. The students here are so grateful for everything. At home students don't value things in the same way. I will remember a lot about this trip."

Volunteer with Children in Sri Lanka

This is an amazing experience that my daughter will never forget and is an experience that we as parents will never be able to give her. She has come back inspired and full of confidence and gained several life skills along the way. Sri Lanka was really special. Thank you.
