Since February 2022, Sri Lanka has been suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis that has affected people’s livings, especially for low-income households. With the help of Zhejiang Anfu Lisheng Charity Foundation and Fujian Daai Charity Foundation, CFPA cooperated with Sri Lanka Overseas Chinese Association and China Sri Lanka Friendship and Development Association to donate a total of 1,150 food packages for emergency relief. One package provides rice, beans and oil. The local government and the beneficiaries expressed gratitude for the donation.

Volunteers from the China Sri Lanka Friendship and Development Association loaded food packages into trucks, then shipped to four beneficiary schools. When the packages arrived, students signed for receiving the food.
