Kadaloor victims receive expatriate help

[TamilNet, Friday, 21 January 2005, 03:34 GMT]
Trincomalee Tamils domiciled in Canada distributed a consignment of cooking utensils through Trincomalee Children Fund (TCF) to about seventy eight displaced families from Kadaloor, a Tamil fishing hamlet in the Kinniya division, about 10 km northwest of the Trincomalee town, sources said.

Mr.A.Parasuraman, Co-ordinator of the TCF-Canada inaugurated the distribution of relief materials to Kadaloor victims now staying in a welfare center setup in Alankerni Vigneswara Maha Vidiyalayam.

Eighty-four families lived in Kadaloor before Tsunami disaster. Now Kadaloor is no-man's land left with debris, damaged fishing boats and collapsed buildings.

Mr.K.Lingaretnam who was freed in March, 2003 from prison on the orders of Trincomalee High Court after 12 years in detention without trial under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) said, "I saw my wife Lalitha (48) and seven month's old daughter Kasthuri being dragged away by Tsunami waves."

Mr.Sri Mangalarajan, President of the Kadaloor Rural Development Society (RDS) said he lost his wife Radhikamalar (28) and one and a half years daughter Suvetha in the deadly waves.

All together 11 including five children died in Kadaloor on December 26 Tsunami last year. Two women Rathi aged 23 and Priya aged 15 have lost their mothers in the Tsunami disaster. They were living with their mothers, as their fathers died earlier, according to sources.
