Victim supporting meeting, SLCBL

Service Providers

In Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Social Services is the lead ministry for disability. Other Ministries, particularly the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Defense, also address important issues relevant to people with injuries and disabilities. VA as part of Sri Lanka’s mine action programme will need to ensure that landmine/ERW ‘victims’ as defined above are adequately reached by programmes implemented under these Ministries and other stakeholders. Stakeholders receiving funding support specifically under Victim Assistance funding via UNICEF include the Ministry of Social Services, Ministry of Health, Handicap International, Motivation, Caritas/Valvuthayam and MRE NGOs.
