Flood relief team in Ratnapura

JEN’s team, a project officer, a logistics officer, an accounting and general admin officer, provide support in Ratnapura.

  Last week we got information about what the people who were affected by the flood needed. From this we made a distribution list for the selected 150 households. Before we could begin distribution the list needs to be approved by the directors of each district, so first we had to visit all 12 districts where the people live.

The project officer negotiates with the district administrative team. With the director he agrees the distribution point from which the people can easily access the items.

The logistics officer gets quotes in Patnapula and Colombo. He received 31 written quotes, for materials to build simple shelters. From these quotes he chose the one that represented the best value.

The accounting and general admin officer is in charge of the office. He purchases office equipment, gets the car ready and pays for the materials.

We all do our best to efficiently purchase the materials, distribute the materials and construct the shelters!
