Mr.Thurairatnasingham, Mr.C.Kumarakuruparan, Deputy Director of the Trincomalee district TRO, and Mr.T.Thavasilingam, Chairman of the Trincomalee District NGOs' Consortium also spoke. Ms Rajeswary Thedchchanamoorthy, Secretary of the Anbu Illam committee proposed vote of thanks.

Anbu Illam was founded in 1985 to give shelter to children who lost their parents in the war in the district. Until last year the Home was administered by an individual who was later removed from his position due to misconduct. The administration of the home was handed over to the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) by the Trincomalee Magistrate on the recommendation of the North East Provincial Department for Child Care. Since then it is being administered by a committee appointed by the Trincomalee district administration of the TRO.
