Sunil C. Perera – Reporting from Colombo Triamcinolone injection order Flonase generic over the counter

Colombo, 21 September, ( The International Organization for Migration [IOM] has decided to provide free transport service for any type of cargoes to all accessible areas in the north and the east, such as Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mullaithivu, Trincomalee, Batticaloa, Ampara, Hambantota, Matara and Galle.

The UNICEF has funded this project and the IOM has resumed its transport programme to support relief and reconstruction projects in Sri Lanka.

IOM maintains a fleet of trucks, which is adjusted regularly to meet demands. Through this fleet, IOM provides transport assistance to government agencies, UN agencies, INGOs and other actors involved in humanitarian work. In addition, IOM is able to provide specialized transport services upon request.

Services include the provision of prime movers to transport containers, flat bed trucks,
and other specialized vehicles to transport cargo such as sand and other building materials.

Since the beginning of operations in January 2005, with previous funding from the government of Japan and the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO), IOM has supported humanitarian actors with transportation. IOM trucks have been dispatched to tsunami- and conflict-affected areas nearly 6,000 times and thus,
IOM’s transport department is well established and capable of offering a very reliable and efficient service.
