GREEN CROSS SRI LANKA’S MASSIVE WATER PROJECT
Clean water is a necessity for any community, but it has taken critical importance in the Ampara
District with the rising of kidney disease patients and water-borne diseases.
As a measure, the Embassy of Japan in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka provided a grant through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) for “Project for Providing Clean Water Supply System at Lahugala of Mahaoya Divisional Secretariat, Ampara District”.
The grant contract was signed on 3rd March 2021 at the Ambassador’s Residence in Colombo, between His Excellency Mr. SUGIYAMA Akira, Ambassador of Japan, and Dr. Jagath Seneviratne, President of Green Cross Sri Lanka, President of KIU along with officials from both parties.
Sri Lanka can construct facilities to supply clean water ensuring that more than 500 families around 2,000 villagers will not suffer from severe water shortage during the dry season again, aspiring our younger generations, residing in the dry zone.
