Sales centre opened in Kilinochchi for products of women's groups

A Sales Centre established by Caritas HUDEC Vanni in collaboration with the Women Rural Development Societies (WRDS) of Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu Districts was declared open on 12th April 2016 by Rev. Fr. George Sigamoney, National Director of Caritas Sri Lanka.

Situated in the heart of Kilinochchi town, this Sales Centre will serve to enhance the marketing facilities for a variety of products made by members of WRDS and other villages based Community Based Organization (CBOs). It was initiated as an intervention of the Caritas Livelihood Programme implemented with funding assistance from Caritas Swiss and constructed under the guidance of Rev. Fr. M.L. Thayaharan, Director of Caritas HUDEC Vanni.

The Opening Ceremony was attended by several Diocesan Caritas Directors and members of women’s groups of the area for whom the new facility is a source of encouragement in their efforts to find a viable market for their products.
