What We Do
Well-Being (Sri Lanka) provides secure water supplies to families in an area of Sri Lanka called the Wanni where people displaced by the 30 year war were resettled.
The aim of the organisation is to help families to improve their lives by access to their own water supply. This will:
Improve health through non-contaminated, consistent supplies of water by providing easier access to drinking water and washing facilities.
In addition, the water will help with the cultivation of food for the family and provide a crop for selling.
Why is it needed?
The 30-year civil war in Sri Lanka ended brutally in 2009, and thousands of internally displaced people were resettled in an area called the Wanni. The landless were allocated pieces of land and the homeless were given small grants to build their own brick houses.
Tens of thousands of those who were disabled, bereaved or displaced as a consequence of the war are still struggling to scrape together a dignified living eight years after the war ended.
Our vision is to transform areas of deprivation and suffering into thriving communities providing families with food and independence and perhaps most of all, hope for the future.
