Tsunami relief: Construction of a fishers’ community hall and establishiment of a fishing livelihood program

This was the second grant to Small Fishers Federation of Lanka (also¬†known as Sudeesa) from Seacology’s tsunami relief fund. The grant provided funding to replace a destroyed fishing community hall used by fishers for meetings, and to set up a fishing livelihood program by purchasing 88 small fishing canoes and sets of fishing gear for villagers who lost their gear in the tsunami.

Half of the fishing canoes have been built and fishing nets distributed. Final construction and distribution is expected to be completed by July 2005.
