Japan further assists Killinochchi reconstruction


Japan has extended US$ 223,075 (approximately Rs.25 Million) grant aid for a reconstruction project in Killinochchi District in order to improve the living environment and livelihood of recent returnees in a conflict affected village in Kandavalai Divisional Secretary Division, Killinochchi.

The project will renovate small scale economic related infrastructure, which would include the construction of the fishery and community hall with water and sanitation facilities to benefit the fishing community, said Chairman of Sewalanka, Dr. Harsha Kumara Navaratna. This also will renovate 3 km of inner road leading to the sea beach area as well as two causeways and a culvert front, which will contribute to improve livelihoods of fishermen, he added.

In order to enable the farmers to engage in paddy cultivation a second season, the project will also support to construct water diversion bund and spill that will enable waters of Kalmadu Tank to be utilized by the farmer community in the Yala season, the Chairman said.

This project is funded under the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human
Security Projects scheme (GGP) and expected to provide significant impact on the lives of the resettled people in terms of ensuring human security.
