The history and the activities of Relief Direct for Destitute

Relief direct for Destitute is a Humanitarian foundation of several church groups and individuals who got together in Feb 2009 to fulfil the needs of the IDP patients arriving in thousands at the Vavuniya General Hospital.

Our main activity was to supply the IDPs with basic needs such as nutrition, Hygienic articles and various other things such as Mats, plates and cups.
