The prolong drought has affected a large population in the Puttlam district. Thousands of people are facing hardship for want of drinking water. Anamaduwa, Navagattegama, Mahakumbukkadawala, Wanathawiluwa, and Mundalama areas are the worst affected. Tanks, village water courses and garden wells have run dry compelling the people to go in search of water to distant areas. Pix by Hiran Priyankara Jayasinghe
