Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO), an NGO registered with Government of Sri Lanka and working exclusively in the NorthEast, is preparing to provide specialized centres to cater to the unique needs of the various groups- injured, frail, expectant or nursing mothers, emotionally traumatized and children under 5 years. A special maintenance centre will be provided as and when a need arises, TRO spokesperson said.
90% of the displaced are living in welfare centres. Expectant and nursing mothers, the injured and the emotionally traumatized are all currently accommodated together.
As proposed by Health services, doctors and nurses of the welfare centres and international organizations - mainly UNICEF, TRO is preparing to implement the specialized facilities in the NorthEast.
