RETURNING HOME: Supporting Conflict Affected People through Housing

PhotoBookReturningHomeAfter thirty years of conflict in Sri Lanka, when internally displaced families returned to their villages, they found their homes badly damaged or destroyed beyond repair. Lacking financial resources of their own, many families were unable to rebuild. For years, they lived in temporary shelters that offered little protection from the elements.

This book is a pictorial journey highlighting the lives of some of the families in the North of Sri Lanka who rebuilt and repaired their permanent homes with assistance from the project “Support to Conflict Affected People through Housing” funded by the European Union, Government of Australia and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), and implemented by UN-Habitat and SDC.
