World Health Day 2020
People’s health is vital for the growth of a nation. It makes an important contribution to the economic progress and the productivity of people. To make the nation’s population healthy, the contribution of Health officials is of utmost importance. Even during this COVID-19 pandemic, they are the frontliners risking their lives daily to protect others. This World Health Day, people in Sri Lanka come together to salute all those who are serving in the health sector – from doctors to nurses to the cleaning staff in health facilities for their unwavering service.

It takes a nation
Violence, in all it’s forms, is the biggest issue affecting children today. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Stop a lost generation
Isolated in unsafe homes, sent to work or pushed into early marriage, millions of boys and girls could be facing physical, emotional and sexual abuse as result of the pandemic.
Many children are already suffering and helplines are being overwhelmed with calls.
The effects on these children will last a lifetime. We must prevent this devastating legacy.
Please help us to convince governments and UN agencies to act.
Please call on governments and institutions to urgently increase funding for health, education and other social services that protect children from all forms of violence and abuse, especially for girls and boys at greater risk due to the impacts of COVID-19.
Stop a lost generation
