COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic created hardship in an unprecedented manner for people across the world including Sri Lanka. The MJF Foundation assessed the needs of the people in plantation communities and immediate support was provided. Dilmah and MJF Foundation presented 10,000 testing kits, virus collection swabs and RNA mini-kits at a cost Rs.44 million to the Ministry of Health, Sri Lanka in June 2020.

In April 2020 over 6000 packs of dry rations and hygience packs were distributed for families including tea estates and other workers in vulnerable communities across Sri Lanka.
