42 houses officially handed over to tsunami victims in Nedunththeevu

[TamilNet, Friday, 03 April 2009, 15:53 GMT]
An official handover event of 42 houses built by North East Community Restoration and Development (NECORD) organization with Asian Development Bank (ADB) aid was held at Nungkaalai in Nedunththeevu, an islet of Jaffna (Delft), on 30th March. K. Ganesh, Jaffna Government Agent (GA), N. Thirulinganathan, Assistant GA Nedunththeevu, NECORD Manager, S. Sivaroopan and several others participated in the event, sources in Jaffna said. The housing project took nearly 5 years to be completed due to the travel difficulties in transporting building material to the island aggravated by restrictions imposed by Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) which holds the island in its complete control, the sources added.


The roads in the housing area were completed construction with the help of HUDEC CARITAS financial assistance.

The vessel Kumuthini that used to sail passengers between Jaffna and Nedunththeevu is in disrepair again and lies abandoned at a jetty in Neunththeevu.

This is the first time in the history of Nedunththeevu a housing project of this nature has been carried out.
