American NGO to assist IDPs in Jaffna district

[TamilNet, Saturday, 16 August 2003, 19:09 GMT]
A US based non-governmental organization called C.A.S. Farm is reported to have come forward to provide assistance to maintain at least ten refugee camps which give accommodation to thousands of internally displaced people and who are unable to resettle in their lands which come under the high security zones of the Sri Lanka Army in Jaffna district, civil group sources said.

The NGO Saturday agreed to provide necessary assistance to repair and maintain the 10 refugee camps before the commencement of the northeast monsoon rain. The UNHCR would provide necessary financial assistance to this international NGO, sources said.

The 10 refugee camps that the NGO will maintain are located in Uduvil, Sanidilipay, Kopay, Chankanai and Tellipallai divisional areas, sources said.

Meanwhile, the Japanese Deputy Foreign Minister during his visit to Jaffna recently also promised assistance to rehabilitate all refugee camps in Jaffna district before the commencement of rainy season, sources said.
