Clean Water in 25 Giant Plastic Tanks

When I was touring the IDP camps for the first time, I noticed long lines of people. Some of them were waiting impatiently with individual buckets to get fresh water. When I inquired as to the situation from Brigadier Wikramasinhe, he told us that many more holding tanks were needed to supply water to such large number of people. The next day we arranged for 25 huge plastic water tanks, most of them 1000 Liter capacity, to be delivered. I was happy to participate in distributing them throughout the IDP camps.
