Civil group warns of humanitarian crisis in Trinco

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 24 May 2005, 17:28 GMT]
Community Empowerment Network of Trincomalee (CENT) Tuesday made an urgent appeal to authorities concerned to take immediate remedial action to restore normalcy and ensure peace in Trincomalee to continue humanitarian assistance to the victims of war and tsunami. " Trincomalee is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis if the current tense situation persists," said CENT in its appeal.

CENT made this appeal after all relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction works had come to a halt in the district following general shut down and violence since May 17th in the east port town.

CENT is a network of governmental, non-governmental organizations working towards psychological empowerment of survivors in the Trincomalee district.

"Trincomalee survived two decades of war and was on the path to peace. This peace was unsettled by tsunami waves and the people have just begun to recover. Unfortunately peace was again interrupted for the last few days. As a result service provisions including basic relief such as water and food are curtailed. Rehabilitation process is stopped," CENT said.

"Government, NGOs and Donors should continue their support. We hope saner counsel prevails", CENT stressed on behalf of survivors.
