ACT 4 Sri Lanka - Community Kitchen in Putiya Nagar, Mankulam and Bandarawela

Sri Lanka is facing the worst economic crisis in its history and heading towards a humanitarian crisis. Latest surveys reveal that 86% of households are using at least one coping mechanism such as reducing food intake, including skipping meals. The cost of food inflation is more than 60% and this means people are struggling to feed their families. The reports suggest that malnutrition among children and pregnant women is alarmingly high and the highest in South Asia. 

In response to this crisis, the ACT foundation has established a hub with an in-house community kitchen in the town of Bandarawela, located in the Badulla district. This is one of the most underprivileged towns with more than 60% of the population living under the poverty line. We supply almost 200 meals a day based on the need of the underprivileged local community.

The primary objective is to serve simple, nutritious, good-quality vegan meals every day during lunch hour. Given the difficulties in securing packaging materials, the food will only be served to persons walking in with hunger. The kitchen will also pay special attention to providing nutritious vegan food for pregnant and feeding mothers and children less than fifteen years old.

The ACT hub will also aim to provide other services such as organizing medical camps, women empowerment, etc. in the future.

Mohanji ACT Foundation from ACT Foundation

Mohanji ACT Foundation is a charity dedicated to caring for all life on earth. We support projects both in the UK and internationally. Our activities include provision of food, clothing and toiletries to the homeless in the UK and sending food and clothing abroad to needy people. We also support people afflicted by natural disasters and have sent aid such as food, clothing, blankets. Mohanji ACT Foundation works on projects small and large which serve humanity, helping the helpless, giving dignity to the poor, showing kindness and compassion to the less fortunate. This charity was created by P.K. Mohan in 2003 in honour of his daughter, Ammu, who passed away at the age of 4 in a tragic road accident in the year 2000. She displayed maturity and purity way beyond her physical age and during her brief sojourn on this planet her love and charisma touched many people’s lives. Through ACT, little Ammu lives on. ACT Foundation encourages us to find our own ways of coming out of the lethargy, apathy and passivity induced by the stress and confusion of our daily lives and to value our free time as a precious opportunity to serve and express unconditional love towards Mother Earth, her people, plants, animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
