The cabinet decided on Thursday to take full responsibility for the children who have lost their parents to the Koslanda landslide.

Cabinet Spokesperson, Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said:

[quote]Seventy five children have been identified so far  -who have lost their parents. Their relatives have made requests. The government has decided to forego all these requests and take responsibility for all these children. Our experience with the Tsunami showed us that certain extended families that took charge of orphaned children did not fulfill their duties by them. The government has decided to forego any aid from any person and to take full responsibility of these children. It was an emergency decision.[/quote]
