[TamilNet, Thursday, 23 February 2006, 16:35 GMT]


The World Bank (WB) funded North East Housing Reconstruction Project (NEHRP) has planned to reconstruct two thousand houses destroyed by war in the Batticaloa district during the year 2006. The beneficiaries will be selected from among the war affected families residing in eighty three villages in eleven divisional secretariat divisions in the Batticaloa district, NEHRP sources said.


In 2005 only 501 war-destroyed houses were reconstructed by the NEHRP. This year the number of houses has increased four fold due to the successful implementation of the project last year, NEHRP sources said.

The villages selected this year are located in the divisional secretariat divisions of Porativupattu, Manmunai South-West, Manmunai West, Manmunai South, Eruvilpattu, Koralaipattu South, Koralaipattu, Koralaipattu West, Koralaipattu Central, Koralaipattu North and Eravurpattu.

Application forms to all war affected families in these villages have been distributed to collect data of damaged houses. These applications are to be scrutinized by a team of officials especially selected for this purpose from each divisional secretariat divisions, NEHRP sources said.
