Three years after the “great wave of destruction,” the local Christian Reformed Church in Sri Lanka is closing its committee to coordinate relief efforts. Although there are a few projects still running, and some new families that had never received any assistance were still found in October, the need for a special committee has ended, the church believes.
Among the final acts of the committee were the completion of seven houses, assistance for 21 self-built homes, support for 150 families to re-establish their livelihoods, and a project to harvest rainwater to save for the dry season. The CRCSL Relief Task Force expressed its thanks “for all those who made it possible to extend God’s love through being the hands and feet of Christ across the island.”
