The need for detergents and disinfectants for cleaning of homes following the receding of floods were met by APAD. The district/divisional secretaries requested A-PAD as an urgent need for people who were returning home. A-PAD in collaboration with Rotary obtained a concentrated bio-degradable detergent and disinfectant. The proportion of liquid mixture is 1:50 which enables larger use. 1000 bottles were provided to homes through the divisional and district officials of Ratnapura. A-PAD volunteers packed and carried out distributions, which was a stepping stone towards getting the affected communities back to their homes.
