The Cabinet of Ministers last week approved a proposal made by the Minister of Women’s Affairs Mrs. K.D.M.Chandrani Bandara to implement an expeditious programme to enhance women breadwinners who have become widows due to the clashes that existed during the recent past.

The move will facilitate women economically and socially in the districts that these women are present in large numbers such as Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mannar, Vavuniya, Mulativu, Ampara, Trincomalee, Batticaloa, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa.
