Livelihoods at risk after floods in Sri Lanka

A young girl looks over her mother's shoulder as women stand in line for aid handouts by the NGO, Save the Children, in Ampara district, about 360km (220 miles) east of Colombo January 25, 2011. Food security and livelihoods are at risk after heavy rains caused widespread flooding and drove hundreds of thousands from their homes, leaving 43 people dead, and damaging or destroying close to 30,000 homes. The damage to agricultural land could leave up to 1 million people, including 400,000 children, without enough food, according to Save the Children. [Photo/Agencies]
