Sri Lankan Economic Crisis Relief

Sri Lankan Economic Crisis

Sri Lanka continues to experience public demonstrations across the country as the country faces its worst economic crisis since its independence from the United Kingdom in 1948. Sri Lanka's sudden devaluation of the local currency and imposition of import limits on hundreds of items have resulted in a heavy shortage of fuel, long hours of power cuts and soaring inflation. With the prices of essential items sky high, the country is already facing a huge shortage in food and medicine. The Government Medical Officers’ Association has warned of a health emergency as hospitals are running out essential medicines.
