Int'l organisations must combine expertise to help Sri Lanka - UN Resident Coordinator

UN Resident Coordinator in Sri Lanka Hanaa Singer-Hamdy yesterday said SriLanka needs her friends to show solidarity to address shortages in food and medical supplies.

“Sri Lanka's gains in healthcare, education and poverty alleviation are being threatened by the current crisis,” she said.

She also said it is imperative for international organisations to combine expertise and resources to help Sri Lanka navigate its economic crisis.

“Honoured to join ADB, FAO, WFP, and others on Friday to discuss how together we can mitigate food insecurity and ensure no one is left behind,” she added.

The UN has mobilised nearly 50 million USD in response to Sri Lanka’s crisis and reached one million people with humanitarian assistance in the areas of food security, agriculture, nutrition, water, protection, education and health.
