The project, assisted by the Vision of Love, UK, and the 23rd Vijayabahu Infantry Regiment, Sri Lanka Army, is expected to supply 2,000 Litres of water daily. This is the 20th village adopted by the SSIO of Sri Lanka. The military presented an award to the SSIO in appreciation of the outreach efforts.
