Islamic Relief began working in Sri Lanka in 2004, in response to the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami.

With emergency and recovery efforts focussing on Ampara, one of the worst affected districts, in two years we had already begun improving resilience in vulnerable communities.

In 2006, we launched our one-to-one orphan sponsorship programme in Sri Lanka – providing vulnerable families with a regular allowance for their basic needs, and enabling children to go to school.

Our most recent emergency response has seen flood affected families in the Eastern province, receiving survival packs.
