Completed Program: Sri Lanka
In 2010, The Humpty Dumpty Institute successfully completed a landmine clearance and dairy development project in Sri Lanka funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food for Progress program. This project, located in the Jaffna peninsula, embodied The Humpty Dumpty Institute's belief that landmine removal and agricultural development are interlinked. The project resulted in the clearance of landmines from over 600,000 m2 of dairy farmland, which is now being utilized for milk production and processing. The Humpty Dumpty Institute also provided training in improved dairy farming production techniques for over 2,000 farmers. Following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, The Humpty Dumpty Institute implemented a multi-year project providing primary care services for 10,000 women and children in Batticaloa and Jaffna Districts. The Humpty Dumpty Institute provided pre- and post-natal medical care; vaccinations against serious diseases; and medical care for ear, nose, throat and eye disorders as well as counseling services for post-tsunami stress disorders.
