A local church in the district of Kegalle, located northeast of Colombo, offered refreshments to the residents in their village. Most of these villagers are unbelievers, but they were happy to receive this simple gesture of kindness. Kids were eagerly waiting for drinks to be served to them.
These drinks were a treat for many. The U.N. has reported that 60% of Sri Lankans are food-insecure, meaning they are reducing the amount of food they eat and are lacking nutritious meals. As many Sri Lankans cut costs, simple treats like these go a long way.
