2011-01-25; Starting late December 2010, Sri Lanka experienced torrential rains causing severe flooding and landslides in the Eastern and Central regions of the country leading to 43 deaths and affecting 1,060,273 people. At the height of the disaster, around the 13th and 14th of January, over 320,000 persons were displaced in temporary emergency shelters in the worst-affected areas. The disaster further resulted in approximately 6,000 destroyed and 23,000 damaged homes.
CIDA support aims to assist World Vision Canada to meet the basic human needs of flood-affected families through enabling access to clean water and providing safe sanitation services. Additionally, World Vision Canada delivers child protection activities to help in re-establishing the psychological and emotional well-being of flood-affected children.
This is a new feature, part of CIDA's efforts towards increasing transparency. Information will only be available for projects approved after October 15, 2011. For other projects, information on expected results is usually included in the description.
