Stand in Solidarity Against Attacks on Christians and Muslims in Sri Lanka

Emergency Appeals: Night time curfews have been imposed across the country following deadly attacks on Muslim owned stores and mosques throughout Sri Lanka. Since the recent attacks on churches in Colombo, on April 21, 2019 that left 250 dead, tensions have been high.

HHRD vetted partner NGO is performing needs assessment to properly provide aid to not only Christian victims recovering from April 2019’s attacks, but now also Muslims families in need. At least 5 towns in the North-Western province of the country have reported increased attacks on Muslims according to the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka.

Muslims make up 10 % of the 22 million people who reside in the region. The government has currently blocked social media networks such as Facebook and WhatsApp following anti-Muslim riots. Sri Lanka remains under a state of emergency since April attacks.

April Attacks: A total of six explosions took place in the early morning hours on what was supposed to be a day of peaceful reflection on Sunday April 21, 2019. The government has reported 257 killed and over 500 injured.
