Humedica assists tusnami-affected fishermen in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 21 July 2005, 18:40 GMT]
Humedica, a Gernam non-governmental organization Thursday concluded its first phase distribution of fishing boats with outboard engines, fishing nets and bicycles to tsunami affected fishermen in the coastal villages from Thondamannaru to Katkovalam in Point Pedro in the Jaffna district.

At an event held at Supparmadam, coastal village which is located about 2 k.m. off Point Pedro town Thursday evening Humedica representatives distributed the final consignment of fishing boats, fishing nets and bicycles to 316 beneficiaries.

Earlier on several occasions the Humedica distributed these items to 438 beneficiaries at various coastal villages in the north, sources said.

Mr.K.Suriyakumaran, Secretary of the Vadamaradchchi Fisheries Societies Federation said Tamil people especially tsunami affected fisher folk have lost confidence on the government that it would render necessary assistance to them to restore their livelihood after the Supreme Court ruling on the implementation of the P-TOMS.

"Tamil people expect international aid organizations to come forward to provide necessary relief and assistance to them directly," Mr.Suriyakumaran said.
