ACTED and Alliance2015 partners completed cash distribution for flood-affected population in southern Sri Lanka

ACTED and its partners People in Need and Helvetas, all part of the Alliance2015 consortium in Sri Lanka, have successfully completed a cash distribution project on the 13th of September, as planned. This three-month project was aimed at supporting the early recovery for the most vulnerable households affected by floods and landslides that hit the country in the end of May 2017.

With the support of the Emergency Fund of Alliance2015, ACTED and its partners reached 714 beneficiaries through cash-for-work programs, and 124 beneficiaries through unconditional cash grants, thereby providing financial support for returning populations in Ratnapura District to rebuild their livelihoods.
