Following the initiative taken by Caritas Sri Lanka National Centre in organizing a large quantity of food and non-food items as relief aid for hundreds of flood victims, the physical distribution of these relief goods to affected families in the Districts of Anuradhapura, Pollonnaruwa, Trincomalee and Batticaloa was systematically arranged under the guidance of the respective Diocesan Directors, namely Rev Fr Paaris Jayamaha, Rev Fr G Nithidasan and Rev Fr Geron de Lima, from 13th to 16th February 2015.

The recipients were deeply appreciative of the Caritas initiative taken at a time when they had suffered heavy losses as a result of the devastating floods and their livelihoods totally disrupted.
This relief package was sponsored by CAFOD-UK/START FUND under  special arrangement with Caritas Sri Lanka.

Rev Fr George Sigamoney, National Director of Caritas Sri Lanka, along with several members of the National Centre staff, joined the Diocesan Directors and their workers and volunteers in effecting a smooth distribution of the relief goods in the villages where the affected families are living after having spent considerable time in temporary camps set up in the aftermath of the floods.
