Vanni uprooted civilians in Raamaavil camp protest against suspension of food supply

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 May 2010, 15:02 GMT]
Nearly a hundred Vanni civilians uprooted due to war and sheltered in Raamaavil camp in Kodikaamam in Themaraadchi gathered Wednesday in front of Thenmaraadchi Divisional Secretariat protesting against the suspension of relief food since 1 May. As the uprooted civilians are free to go out of the camp Jaffna Government Agent (GA) had ordered the suspension of relief food items to the refugees expecting them to find employment and their own means of living, Thenmaraadchi Divisional Secretariat sources said. The civilians complained that their children are starving and demanded immediate resettlement in their own places.

More than 2500 persons of 1001 families live in Raamaavil camp as refugees.

Before 1 May Jaffna Secretariat had supplied the relief food items on daily basis per person to the refugees who cooked their food.

The protestors said that though they had requested GA Jaffna and Thenmaraadchi Secretary to continue to supply the relief food items to them in writing so far nothing has happened to remedy the situation.
