Officials announced on Thursday that the prize money that Australia’s cricket stars won during their recent tour of Sri Lanka has been donated to help the children of that nation, which is currently undergoing a crisis. After the men’s squad experienced long petrol lineups and political demonstrations while they were on their mid-year trip, Cricket Australia announced that US$30,000 would be donated as a sign of solidarity to the team. Millions of people in Sri Lanka are having a harder time making ends meet as a result of the country’s skyrocketing inflation rate and frequent gasoline shortages. The United Nations has declared a humanitarian crisis, and the country’s president and prime minister have both been removed from their positions as a result of the huge protests.
The visiting Australians were able to witness the crisis for themselves.
According to the captain of the team, Pat Cummins, “it was extremely evident to us how much of an impact day-to-day life is having” on the people of Sri Lanka.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is the recipient of the funds.
