The United States said today it would join with other international donors to provide one million US dollars to support resettlement efforts in Sampur as part of its continuing commitment to strengthen Sri Lanka’s peace and development.

The US Embassy said as President Maithripala Sirisena said last Saturday at a ceremony in Sampur, Trincomalee, Sri Lanka’s efforts had attracted support from the international community.

“The United States joined other international donors and will provide $1 million to support resettlement efforts in Sampur as part of its continuing commitment to strengthen Sri Lanka’s peace and development,” the release issued by the Embassy said.

 “Our goal is to help Sri Lankans around the country overcome the effects of conflict and displacement, improve the lives of their families and communities, and live with dignity,” said U.S. Ambassador Atul Keshap.  

 The first $100,000 would be managed by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide newly-resettled communities with a range of services and means of support to meet their basic needs while another $900,000 was planned by the U.S. Embassy to build two schools in the Sampur region with facilities to support and house displaced families.

 “This $1 million in aid is part of broader U.S. efforts to build schools, hospitals, markets, and other facilities for people in former conflict-affected communities. Other programs include helping provide job opportunities and entrepreneurship skills for people across Sri Lanka,” the release said.

    Now we see the difference. RW voice and MR voice. They both says the same but in different manner. US got the right person to tackle easily. We will get the thunders soon. People better look for shelters. Worst will commence soon.
