5.7 Million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Sri Lanka – Report

A total of 5.7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Sri Lanka, with 4.9 million being food insecure, a report produced by the OCHA stated.

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), a total of 1.7 million people are prioritised through the Humanitarian Needs and Priorities (HNP) Plan launched on June 09, 2022.

The HNP Plan calls for USD 47.2 million to implement responses to lifesaving priorities between June and September 2022, with a particular emphasis on averting a further deterioration of needs in lifesaving sectors and thus prevent a full-scale humanitarian crisis.

The Central Emergency Response Fund has approved a USD 5 million rapid response allocation to address urgent needs in priority districts.
