Moothoor east uprooted families languish in temporary shelters

[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 August 2010, 15:43 GMT]
Hundreds of uprooted Tamil families from Champoor north and east, Kooniththeevu and Navarathinapuram in Trincomalee district are accommodated in temporary shelters made up of tin sheets and cadjan leaves in Ki’liveddi, Ma’nalcheanai and Paddiththiddal in Moothoor division. They are agitating for their early resettlement in their villages. They fled from their villages following the military offensive launched by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in April 2006. The uprooted families had sought refuge first in Batticaloa district.

Since then the uprooted families have been accommodated in temporary shelters for the last two years.

The families have almost lost hope that they would be allowed to go to their own villages.

The temporary shelters are not provided with sufficient drinking water and health facilities.
