Norwegians assist Kinniya tsunami affected families

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 March 2006, 00:52 GMT]
Twenty permanent houses constructed with the funds collected by Norwegians in their country under the sponsorship of Norwegian Solidarity Organization were handed over to the tsunami affected families in Naduottu, a village in Kinniya division in Trincomalee district Wednesday afternoon. Each 500 sq.ft house was constructed at a cost of five hundred thousand rupees, sources said.

Several Norwegians raised money in their country to assist tsunami hit Kinniya residents following an appeal made by Mr.Mubarak Ali who was born in Kinniya and later immigrated to Norway for the last twenty years. He is the eldest son of late Mr.M.E.H.Mohamed Ali who represented the Muttur electorate, which included Kinniya division in the Trincomalee district in the parliament for several years.

Representatives of Norwegian Solidarity who helped for the cause arrived in Colombo beginning of this week and later visited Kinniya Wednesday in the company of Mr.Mubarak Ali and participated in the handing over of houses to the tsunami affected families. Mr.Erik F.Brede, Counselor of the Norwegian embassy in Sri Lanka accompanied them.

Money collected by several Norwegians was channeled through the Norwegian Solidarity, a non-governmental organization and the implementing partner was the Eastern Forum For Resources Development (EFFORD), sources said.
