Dear friends and supporters,
We hope you are all keeping well, and feeling hopeful now that our lives in the UK are gradually getting back to some sort of normality.
While much reporting has taken place of the terrible situation in India as the pandemic takes hold and hundreds of thousands a day are coming forward with infections, Sri Lanka remains a silent Covid partner in the news.
With a population of 21 million people, present daily cases are at a record high with more people dying than at any time during this pandemic; and the numbers are critically rising.
Their Future Today is one of a dwindling number of UK charities that concentrates all its efforts in Sri Lanka, supporting the most vulnerable, and providing a lifeline for families who are in strict lockdown.
Many are at risk of being taken by starvation and not Covid having lost all means of income, and the situation is terrifying and desperate.
A crisis crystallizes what really matters, and while we’re working hard towards ending institutionalization and changing the world for thousands of children, our work at the grassroots to help one child and one family at a time is pivotal at this critical time, and we can't thank you enough for your continued and loyal support.
Lynn, Joel, and Team TFT
