The National Partnership to End Violence Against Children (NPEVAC) in Sri Lanka was launched on 2 June 2017 in Colombo. The event saw the participation of UN agencies, international organizations, civil society, faith groups, and the private sector. LEADS was represented by the CEO and several of its staff members at this important occasion that marks collaborative effort towards ending violence against children.
LEADS carried out a month-long relief program in Bulathsinhala and Palindanuwara DS divisions in Kalutara. Nearly a thousand people benefited through LEADS interventions in the district.
Torrential rains and mudslides have affected 629,704 people in 15 districts across Sri Lanka. LEADS is responding in three of the worst-hit districts - Ratnapura, Matara & Kalutara.
