DRC is helping needed families from Tamil, Sinhala and Muslim communities, added Ms.Ebbesen.

DRC's Protection Advisor, Zelah Senior, new Protection Advisor to replace Ms.Senior, Chris Rush, and Planning Advisor, K.K.Ranjan also participated in the press briefing.

"We are carrying out projects to improve the living conditions of resettled communities. Working with 25 other co-operating organizations we are building roads, providing clean drinking water and helping residents in skills development to make them self-reliant," said Ms.Ebbesen.

"More than 25,000 people from around 6000 families have so far benefitted from our work. The work which we started in 2001 with funds from the Danish Government and a Charitable Organization in Netherlands is scheduled to complete in December 2004. But, we are trying to obtain additional funding so that the work can be continued beyond 2004," added Ms.Ebbesen.

The DRC representatives said that they are watching closely the situation related to forthcoming elections and the events unfolding in the Eastern Province and added that these events have not affected DRC's rehabilitiation work.
