No further flood effect for IDPs


Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Menik Farm relief center are now not affected by the present floods, Colonel Vadugodapitiya, Chief Co-ordinating Officer for relief services for the IDPs said.

Earlier, the Kadiragamar and Ananadakumaraswami zones of Menik Farm were affected to a small extent by the flood brought about by overflowing water from the Kallaru Oya. But the authorities took immediate measures to shift the IDPs to the other zones which have been remaining empty after resettling thousands of IDPs in their places of origin, he added.

All the IDPs in Menik Farm relief village are in a good condition with all required facilities for living as they earlier did in the camps, the Chief Co-ordinating Officer further stated.
