TRO assists NE flood victims

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 November 2004, 17:12 GMT]
Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) has launched a project to provide dry rations and other relief supplies to flood victims in all the eight districts in the northeast province in collaboration with the respective Government Agent and other local non-governmental organizations, TRO said in a press release Wednesday.

Several thousand families in the northeast districts have been affected by the recent torrential rain. Low lying areas in several districts are under floodwater, crops have been destroyed and several families have sought refuge in schools and public buildings as their houses are under water, social service officials said.

TRO press release said that it is working with the government agent of the district by providing cooked meals and supplying good drinking water.

TRO has requested all peoples' representatives and non-governmental organisations to immediately contact its district offices in the northeast province with detailed reports of the affected and proposed relief measures, the press release added.

Meanwhile the Jaffna district TRO officials Wednesday started supplying dry ration relief to people affected by flood. About 150 families in Kaakaithivu, Pommai Veli and Vasanathapuram Wednesday received relief from TRO Jaffna officials, sources said.

Several families living in low lying areas in the Jaffna district have moved to highlands as their houses and farms are flooded with rainwater, sources said.
