A hungry child is not able to learn
Professor Nowak Foundation supported children heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Sri Lanka in cooperation with the Shilpa Shakthi FoundationShilpashakthi Foundation
These children are from the households that live in near poverty circumstances and the pandemic has been affecting their life even further. For instance, because their parents lose their job p.e. as tea labourers and, due to their living conditions, they are more at risk of becoming infected with the virus. Supporting 32 children meant that we reached at least 130 persons in their families or communities.
Through this project, we also learnt further about the living condition of the children, the difficulties they are facing, and how some of them can be supported even further for their education.
