Basic food is provided by the government and from UNICEF as well as NGO, however some foods like vegetables have to be bought from vendors who sell these items inside of the camps. For those families who have income coming in from abroad this is hardly as issue for them. However, other families that are poor have trouble purchasing such items. The One Sri Lanka Foundation along with the help of donations from Hayleys as well as others has helped the people of Menik Farms learn to cultivate their own vegetation.
One of the first projects by the OSLF was to provide the people with a hand tractor, Mammoties, shovels, wheel barrows and other farming equipment. The results from these efforts are simply amazing.
