Bringing the community to Capital for flood lessons learned.

Mr. D.M. Senabanda from Welangolla village in Matale District addressing Red Cross volunteers and staff in Colombo today on how he, as a flood affected community member, viewed the Red Cross relief and recovery efforts.

Evidence based impact, resilience, beneficiary communication the jargon flows thick and fast in the humanitarian sector.

Today the Sri Lanka Red Cross/IFRC supported Post Flood Recovery operation drew to a close with a Lessons Learned meeting and a celebration. Great to see government officials from remote areas participating and people from communities who benefitted from the programme. Here is Mr. D.M. Senabanda from Welangolla village in Matale District addressing us all and telling us what we did well, and where we can improve. In his own way, he touched on community resilience and how the Red Cross were the first in his community to augment their first response efforts with mobile clinics. Like many others, Mr. Senabanda received funding for an owner driven houses and a livelihood grant. Yes, we do lessons learned at community level, but is is so good to bring in people from communities to our meetings so a wider audience of volunteers and staff can learn at all levels. Maybe Mr. Senabanda should be at the Davos meeting?

One of our field volunteers addressing all the participants at today's Red Cross Flood Recovery lesson's Learned meeting.

This kind of mulch s also more natural looking than other mulch choices out
there for the delicate look of flower gardens. Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean you have to give up on mulching your
yard; you just have to be willing to do some work.
When ordering mulch, find out what the delivery cost is and
compare it between companies before ordering.

Much of the Christmas celebration actually begins in the
last week leading up to Christmas and this is the time that the event s joined by those taken flights to Egypt from UK and
other places. The newspaper printing machines available online these days are
superior in performance. This is also probably one of the easiest forms of advertising,
with only an advert designed for a specific box needing to be created.
In just about every objective way that nations can be judged
the US is losing the present. Once you start packing with regular newspaper, 2 primary disadvantages become quickly apparent.

This makes the mixing phase a lot easier, just put in your concrete and water, and off you go by the
wheelbarrow load. Polished concrete floors come in different colours and types to suit the different decorative
and functional requirements of domestic or commercial customers.

Repairing larger cracks or holes in driveways takes a little more time
and preparation.

It is through the use of this medium that they wish to make

very good for him to speak, without bitterness,
of the faults of the past books. Several news reports, writers, and analysts
play a crucial role in the development of global news undoubtedly.
