CREST deployed a 2nd team to Sri Lanka on the 14th-18th July. The objectives were to help mitigate the ongoing dengue outbreak by conducting cleanup operations in two villages that had low income and had been affected by the floods and landslides. Public health talks were given at the villages. We were overwhelmed by the response of the locals who showed up to take responsibility in cleaning up and unclogging drains.

CREST was able to distribute 400 mosquito nettings to the two villages of Haldola, Mudduwa, and also the Childrens Dengue Ward in Ratnapura. CREST also distributed other `items such as brooms, gloves, boots, and garbage bags for the clean up operation.
