On behalf of the World Food Day on 16th October 2008, a very important programme was lunched by National Fisheries Solidarity Movement (NAFSO) among the series of programme we conducted around the country.
It was organized by NAFSO Karuwalagaswewa partner organization “ Prajashakthi Development Foundation” concerning the day of 16th October as the World Hunger Day.
Additionally the participated poor farmers and inland fishers were educated about the world food crisis, reasons for that and how multinational companies are growing this hunger around the world for their profit and how farmers can involve eradicating hunger out from the world as a sustainable solution for that.
NAFSO distributed some dry rations for the participants coinciding with this awareness programme.
PIADS coordinator Mr. Priyankara Costha and NAFSO Alternative Economic Development (AED) Coordinator Mr. Pradeep Wangasooriya gave their great service to make this programme a successful one.
