Northern region – the end of a program and beginning of another

Thanks to cooperation from Japan Platform and our supporters, our well repair and cleaning program in Vavuniya County, Vavunia district was completed on June 30th. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone.

At Vavuniya County, where the program took place, the villagers helped repairing the well, and skilled workers did stonework using traditionally made scaffolds made from wood gathered nearby.

The other day, our program officer met the District Governor. We were highly appraised for our efforts of cleaning and repairing wells on a large scale in this district.

Our next program will be located in Mullaittivu district, which takes 33 hours by car from Vavuniya. We will continue repairing and cleaning wells, and will also construct transitional shelters and toilets targeted for 188 families. The program will start on July 1st and will last until November 1st of this year.

The first half of the year has ended, but members of JEN Vavuniya office are still on the go. We appreciate your continuous support to our activities.
