The districts of Batticaloa and Ampaarai east of Sri Lanka have been affected by second natural disaster within two months, with lashing torrential rains and floods. The overflowing water from irrigation tanks has entered villages in the two districts and normalcy has been badly affected. Flood affected people are forced to undergo tremendous hardships due to lack of food and other facilities as the civil authority had failed to provide relief promised for the previous natural calamity that took place few months back.
SCOT has been working closely with two Registered Local Charities to provide food and accommodation to affected parties. More help is required for resettling the displaced families and to bring back a level of normality in the region.
