The opposition has initiated a communication centre to support the public.
The centre set up will provide aid to 100 individuals daily. The programme got underway yesterday.
The Samagi Jana Balawegaya said individuals with a surplus of goods such as food items and essentials and donors can also contribute to the programme.
Explaining the process of the programme via social media, former Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra said there is a major wealth distribution deficit in the country.
Premachandra said the goal of the community centre is for capable individuals to look after those who are in need of dire assistance.
She said they received stocks of soya meat, rice, dhal and 50 breadfruits yesterday adding those items will be distributed amongst the needy.
The former MP expects more items to be donated.
She said their aim is to distribute whatever they are able to raise at this difficult juncture.
Premachandra called on all factions capable of donating items to do so to the community centre.
Meanwhile, MP Dr. Harsha de Silva said it is the community helping the community adding whatever individuals can contribute even if it is a single item is welcome.
MP de Silva said every bit helps since the next six months will be a difficult period for most.
