Many families returning to Musali Division in Mannar District are benefitting from a project funded by Misereor Germany and implemented by Valvuthayam under the direction of Rev Fr S. Jeyabalan, Director and the overall guidance of Caritas Sri Lanka SEDEC. These families were displaced in 2007 as a result of military advancement in that area.
Under the project, 58 boats with engines and nets were distributed among 116 persons while 400 families were provided with livelihood endeavours such as water pumps for cultivation. Dairy farming was encouraged through the distribution of cows and goats.
149 youth were given vocational training in fields such as masonry, electrical wiring, beauty culture, sewing and motorcycle repairing. They were provided with tool kits at the end of the training.
Psychosocial support was also given to 500 individuals while another 150 persons benefitted from group counselling.
