What we're doing
Reconstruction and rehabilitation are high on the agenda in Sri Lanka, following the end of a civil war that spanned two decades. 2011 saw torrential rain and heavy winds wipe out thousands of homes and livelihoods.
As well as helping people rebuild their lives in after conflicts, Oxfam works with local organisations to build wells and provide sanitation facilities for villages affected by natural disasters.
Plus, since more than 60% of Sri Lankan women suffer domestic violence, we also ensure that women's rights are upheld. Our 'We Can' campaign aims to break down social attitudes and customs that support violence against women.
