Drought will leave over 12,000 Kilinochchi families without drinking water

Drought in the North has resulted in drinking water shortages for over 12,000 families in Kilinochchi.

Research presented at a political meeting on tackling the ongoing drought, found that around 12,200 families will suffer from a lack of clean, drinking water.

Families in several districts across Kilinochchi lack access to wells and tanks, and also lack the resources to import clean water from other areas.

Continual drought in the North has already resulted in damage to thousands of acres of crop fields across the region.
