Caritas continues to support housing and livelihoods for resettled families

In the village of Illakanthi in Sampoor (Trincomalee District), 14 new houses built with Caritas Swiss funding were handed over to resettled families on 29th May 2014. Already, Caritas had completed 40 houses in Sampoor and handed these over to the beneficiaries. Ten latrines were also built in this location for families with more female members.

In nearby Ninakerni village, foundations were laid for 30 houses to be built with funding assistance from Caritas Spain.

In both the above-named villages, nearly 60 families were given livelihood support to start income generation activities such as goat rearing, small trade, home gardening and so on. In total, more than 200 families have so far been provided with means of livelihood in Sampoor. These grants were funded by Caritas Swiss.
