Barathipuram on road to recovery

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 September 2004, 13:55 GMT]
Barathipuram, a Tamil settlement founded in 1964, about 3 km. off Trincomalee town, with currently about 125 families, is slowly rising with new amenities obtained with financial assistance from Lions Club of Trincomalee.

The entire village fled in 1990 ethnic disturbances and most of them have returned to their homes.

Barathipuram is one of the new settlements that had come outside the proper Trincomalee town. Anpuvallipuram, Palaiyootru, Chelvanayakapuram are also among the new settlements outside Trincomalee town where Tamils live.

A pre-school for the children of the village is functioning in the building of Barathipuram Rural Development Society.

Barathipuram RDS President Mr.Visvanathan speaking at the event.
Trincomalee Town Lions Club President Mr.B.Uthayashankar distributes essential items to a resident of the village.

Recently the Lions Club of Trincomalee Town and Century Lions Club provided free eye-glasses to the needy people of the area and learning materials to pre-school students at an event held in the premises of the RDS.

They also provide financial support for supply of electricity to the RDS building.

Trincomalee Town Lions Club and Century Lions Club also provided a room for the village level officer of Barathipuram for official use thus enabling him to look into the urgent needs of the villagers promptly. The new office was also declared open recently.

RDS President Mr.M.Visvanathan said the assistance by the Lions Club of Trincomalee Town and Century Lions Club has come as a boost for the development of the village.

Mr.B.Uthayashankar, President of the Trincomalee Town Lions Club, and Mr. Julian of Century Lions Club unveiled the name board of the RDS.

Women and children attend the event.
