COVID-19 pandemic has caused many hardships to vulnerable families especially in the rural areas of Kilinochchi district. Many families face unprecedented difficulties in accessing food items because of imposed lock downs and curfew declared by the government to prevent the transmission of the virus. The daily wage earners are the worst affected segment of the community and to provide some relief to these marginalised families CORD Sri Lanka facilitated the distribution of fresh vegetable packs to 400 families in Ulavanoor,Kallaru, Visvamadu,Tharmapuram & Piramandanaru in the district of Kilinochchi. The vegetables were transported from Nuwara-Eliya to distribution points by the Sri Lanka Army and the costs were all borne by Mr and Mrs Sujan and Jenny , long standing donors of CORD Sri Lanka from USA, and Capt. Lalin De Silva from UAE.
Sri Lanka Army provided transport to CORD staff to different locations to distribute these vegetable packs.
