Challenge

Current priority for SCOT is to help the people affected by the WAR - the Internally Displaced People (IDP’s) in Vanni, Sri Lanka. Estimated to be around 150,000 and the conditions for them have been described as "nothing short of catastrophic" by the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross). Funds will be used to purchase dry rations, medicines and medical equipments and additional funds will be used to provide temporary accommodation and help relocating the displaced people.

Solution

We will purchase dry rations, medicines and medical equipments for the IDP's and additional funds will be used to provide temporary accommodation and help relocating the displaced people.

Long-Term Impact

Ongoing support and funding will help remove the displaced people from camps and re-locate them in their homes or prefered local locations. Immediate funds are needed to help provide food and shelter in the intermin.
