The economic crisis is mainly due to political instability, the aftermath of Covid and the 2019 bombings in Sri Lanka. All of this has greatly affected tourism in the country. People are facing daily power outages and shortages of basic goods such as fuel, food and medicine. Inflation is running at more than 50%.
The Dimuthu Foundation, led by Father Jude, is located in the heart of Colombo and is dedicated to caring for underprivileged people, children without parents and disabled children, and continuously support them in their daily needs.
In these difficult times, D.R.O.P.S. provided financial support for the educational needs of the poorer children and for the basic needs of the underprivileged and elderly who are directly affected by the current crisis.
