In December 2012, more than 300,000 people were affected in 15 districts in Sri Lanka due to severe weather conditions with floods and landslides in many parts of the island. Many of those who were displaced due to the inclement weather have returned to their homes. However, some are still dependent on the assistance given to them, as life is slowly getting back in order.
Muslim Aid Sri Lanka distributed food and non food items to those affected which included:
- 1000 packs of dry rations
- 400 packs of non-food items (mats, bed sheets, new clothes, towels) and purified water
