About Sri Lanka

The small island nation of Sri Lanka recently emerged from more than two decades of civil war and political fighting. Although the economy is slowly being rebuilt, many are still living in poverty.

With a population of nearly 21.5 million, 85% of people live in rural areas of the monsoon-prone island and children are especially susceptible to poverty and its devastating effects.

• 21 percent of children under age five are malnourished or underweight.
• Water-borne diseases like bacterial diarrhea and Hepatitis A are common.
• 14 percent of the population is living below $1.25 per day.

You can change this! Please sponsor a child in Sri Lanka.

When you sponsor a child in Sri Lanka for $38 a month, you give them the opportunity to become all God has created them to be. As a part of Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program they receive:

• Nutritious food and supplements
• Immunizations and ongoing health care
• the opportunity to play and learn in a safe, clean environment
• vocational training
• opportunities to know Christ and grow in faith

Take a few moments right now to sponsor a child in one of Sri Lanka’s Child Sponsorship Programs. Look over the photos on this page and ask the Lord which child He would like to bless through you.
