One of the biggest threats in the camps is the potential transmission of diseases, due to the increase in the levels of mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies and other insects.
With donations received to date, IMPAKTaid has started a spraying programme in some of the camps in Tangalle, Galle, Moratuwa and Mount Lavinia. Donations are required in order to continue this vital project.
The cost of one operation (covering approximately ½ acre of open ground and buildings) is estimated at Rs. 5000/- (U.S. $50)
