Colombo (News 1st): The residents of the Hengamuwa village visited News 1st today (March 11), with sweets that have been made from the initial harvest they reaped as a token of their appreciation. They arrived here to extend their gratitude for completing an anicut project in their village under the Gammadda 1000 projects initiative.

The Hengamuwa Village is home to a number of farmers. Their only source of water for agricultural purposes was the Ambagaha anicut.

However, this anicut was in a dilapidated state and the farmers living in this area had to undergo many hardships to obtain water for their agricultural needs. They had taken steps to inform the relevant officials regarding this requirement but, their plea went unheard.

Under the Gammadda 1000 projects initiative, steps were taken to resolve this problem that the villagers of Hengamuwa were facing over the years. With the support of Jifi Products (S.L.) Pvt Limited, the project completed in 2017 and was handed over the people.
