IDPs in Pulmoaddai camps suffer without enough water

[TamilNet, Monday, 12 October 2009, 16:52 GMT]
Hundreds of Vanni internally displaced families held in two camps in Pulmoaddai in Trincomalee district are undergoing untold hardships due to acute shortage of drinking water. Until last week each camp was supplied with two hundred thousand liters of water for drinking and other purposes. Now the quantity has been reduced to fifty thousand liters.

Civil authorities say the quantity of water has been reduced due to drought in Pulmoaddai area where majority of wells including those dug up in the camps have gone dry.
