Caritas builds water tank for relocated village in the East

Ilakanthai in Mutur DS Division, Trincomalee  is a village where nearly 125 displaced families have been relocated after their original lands were taken up in the high security zone which includes the site of the proposed Sampoor coal power plant.

These families have long faced severe hardships in obtaining their requirements of pure drinking water and Caritas responded by constructing a 14,000-litre capacity water tank which was recently handed over for people’s use by the Diocesan Director of EHED Caritas Trincomalee, Rev Fr G Nithidasan.

This tank which was built with funding assistance from Caritas Swiss as a community grant project will be maintained by members of the Women’s Rural Development Society (WRDS) of the area.
