So far donors have given $8.4 million, but the UN says it needs at least $51 million to respond to the crisis.

Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) says it’s delivering food to half a million people affected by the massive floods and also planning for longer-term support.

More than 1.2 million people have been affected by flooding in Sri Lanka.
