Sri Lanka Floods devastating aftermath...
Sri Lanka Floods cause Fish Disease: Worst floods in half a century in Sri Lanka’s history have caused an estimated $600 million in damage. Now the after effects of the floods are surfacing. One of the main staples of Sri Lanka’s is fish and rice.
A disease caused by the floods is depleting the fish stocks of Sri Lanka. 11,750 of fishermen’s families are badly affected as a result of people refusing to buy or eat fish. (BBC). Our partners on the ground are working closely with the victims of the flood, who are now returning to the homes, but only to find out that their homes are damaged, water contaminated and livestock killed in large numbers.
