Sri Lanka’s Economic Crisis Causes Hunger

According to Sandarenu Amarasiri, a teacher at the state school in Colombo, Sri Lanka, children have been arriving at school quietly starving. This is because many families can barely afford a meal a day. The economic crisis has also meant that many parents can’t afford transport or uniforms for their children, resulting in missing school.

Amarasiri says that the situation is having a serious impact on the children’s education and well-being. “They are unable to concentrate in class and falling behind.”

The government has promised to provide free meals for all schoolchildren, but so far, more is needed to solve the problem.

Amarasiri is calling on the government to do more to help families in need so that children can get the education they deserve. “No child should have to go to school hungry,” she says.

“It’s not fair.”
