Funding for a tube well & hand pump in cleared jungles of Katkulam, Vavuniya

Tamil Engineers Foundation provided Rs180,000 (Approximately $1500) to construct a community tube well & hand pump in the cleared jungles in Vavuniya. About 20 families will be benefitted by this community well. Most of them come from women-headed families affected by the civil war and have lived many years in the refugee camps.

The committee wishes to thank Mr. Somanathan and Katkulam Rural Development Society from Vavuniya for coordinating this project with keen interest. Also, we thank Eng. Sriskandarajah Deputy Director of the Department of Irrigation, Vavuniya for his guidance in facilitating project implementation.

Most of the families in this area are at the very low socio-economic level and I am sure the tube well & hand pump will greatly benefit the needy people who have been resettled in this area recently.

We thank you all for your great support.
