Reviewing GTZ relief projects in Sri Lanka with the German ambassador

Today I join German ambassador Jens Plötner and second secretary Regina von Ahn, in oder to review two projects of GTZ (Gesellschaft für technische Zusammenarbeit which works worldwide in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development). It is about the resettlement and education of female muslim civil war refugees.

I am assigned to document this.

After all they've been through they retained their humor.

It seems the women get along very good.

After years on the run many of the women now have a small piece of land they can cultivate. Corn and beans were offered to us.
