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