Show Notes

Sri Lanka currently faces an unprecedented economic crisis due to a heavy reliance on global trade and tourism that has slowed due to the pandemic. This has led thousands to lose their jobs. Despite the situation, people like Chamanka, who is involved with several NGOs, have offered to help underprivileged people by providing food and other essential needs throughout the pandemic.
