The humanitarian aid after the tsunami in 2005 was the trigger of People in Need’s operations in Sri Lanka. PIN´s primal target area was an unstable region in the North-East of the island where the conflict between the Tamil Tigers and the government forces threatened to re-emerge. The threat became reality in July 2006 when the fighting recommenced.

Alongside with responding to immediate humanitarian needs and reconstruction of the infrastructure after the tsunami and armed conflict, PIN focused on recovery of livelihoods of affected families and communities.

Humanitarian interventions of the past years which react to the return of the internally displaced population after the end of the armed conflict have similar focus. Majority of displaced people has returned during 2010-2011 to their destroyed homes and found it difficult to restart their original livelihoods without any external assistance. The assistance provided by PIN ranged from owner driven reparations of partly damaged houses to cash transfers through cash for work or cash grant schemes that enabled the people to income to cover their immediate food and other needs.

Humanitarian aid to Sri Lanka provided by PIN also reacts to localized events and incidents such as floods in the Trincomalee and Batticaloa Districts in early 2011.
