It appears that in 2006, as part of the post-tsunami reconstruction efforts, a housing project was undertaken in the Kalmunai and Karaitivu areas. The initiative involved the construction of 50 permanent houses, each valued at 6 lakh rupees. Christian Aid provided financial assistance for this project.
Additionally, temporary houses were constructed for 27 beneficiaries selected from Sammanthurai and Navithanveli areas. The financial support for these temporary houses came from Oxfam and ZOA.
This collaborative effort aimed to address the housing needs of those affected by the tsunami in the specified regions, providing both permanent and temporary housing solutions to individuals and families who had experienced the devastating effects of the natural disaster.
