#SriLanka’s economic crisis is so severe that it has brought the entire country to its knees. The pandemic, inflation, rising fuel prices, food and fuel shortages, Russia-Ukraine War have all contributed to the downfall of the economy which may take the country years to overcome.
Three years ago, to turn the agricultural sector organic, the country’s now disgraced President Rajapaksa ordered an almost overnight ban on the use of chemical fertilizer.
The plan however backfired, destroying the sector and bringing down production to almost half!
With not enough time for the farmers to adapt to the change, agricultural production took a heavy hit with rising costs and heavy damage to crops.
For the people of Sri Lanka, this is an ultimate test for survival. Their future is so grim that they do not know if they can manage basic food for survival. People are starving with no hope for tomorrow.
While Sri Lanka is fighting towards transforming its political landscape, they have little control over its economic future.
We at #AustralianTeaComapany pledge to support our brothers and sisters in need and are working to do our bit for a better tomorrow.
