On the initiative of the Addalaichenai Development Forum, HELVETAS Sri Lanka under its ‘Sahruda’ Dry Ration Distribution Programme is now providing relief packages to underprivileged villagers. The volunteers visited Alayadivembu Divisional Secretariat and handed over the relief packages to selected villagers.
Divisional Secretary V. Pabakaran, President of the Addalaichenai Development Forum I.L. Hashim and Finance Officer S. Selveraj distributed the packages. Each package was worth Rs 5,000.
It may be noted that several non-governmental organisations, philanthropists and social welfare organisations are extending their helping hand in various ways to those who lost their livelihood due to travel restrictions imposed by the Government to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
