Needs to Win the Coronavirus

To support the tea estate communities, particularly the elderly, to get the medication and basic supplies they need whilst unable to work or leave their houses due to curfew and Coronavirus. A huge number of daily workers, including those from the tea estates, are unable to work and are now without the ability to purchase even basic food, this is resulting in vulnerability and increasing incidents of domestic violence

Coronavirus is sweeping the globe and the communities worst hit will be those with poor infrastructure, high population concentration and malfunctioning governments. Sri Lanka has all three of these issues. Tea estate workers are daily wage earners and the global downturn is seeing their livelihoods affected. With poor & inaccessible health services, a government that sees them as 3rd class citizens & elders having to work past retirement to survive, Coronavirus is terrifying this community.
