During my second visit I met Mr. Jayasundara,
he was in charge of allocating lands for donors
(one of among many other jobs)
He is an extremely busy gentleman with a dedicated staff.
I was amazed with their commitment and hard work in a
such a chaotic environment. This division was overwhelmed
with tsunami reconstruction work. The staff was never
trained to handle a disaster of such a magnitude. They
were to support building over 60,000 houses within a limited
time period, acquire land and assist
with all other construction and planning work on top
of their routine work.
