Housing for conflict affected female-headed families in North and East

Ms. Pamela Stathakis, Programme Manager, Humanitarian Aid Department of Caritas Switzerland  visited Sri Lanka from 2nd to 10th October 2016  to assess the progress of the housing project funded by Caritas Switzerland.

She visited Jaffna and Trincomalee regions to witness the ongoing work of the housing project and had the privilege of taking part in the soft-opening of four houses to beneficiaries in Maruthankery in Vadamarachchi East (Jaffna District) and one house at Illakanthai in the Trincomalee District.

Ms. Stathakis also held discussions with Rev.Fr. M.L. Thayaharan and Rev.Fr. G. Nithidasan, Diocesan Directors of Caritas Vanni – HUDEC and Caritas Trincomalee- EHED respectively, along with staff and other stakeholders of the project in order to find out the ground level issues that affect the project implementation when conducting an owner-driven housing project of this nature.

According to the project plan, 26 houses in Jaffna and 51 houses in Trincomalee Districts will be built for the conflict affected female-headed families of North and East.
