"We expect all local non-governmental organisations in the district to become partner organisations in our activities of rehabilitating the families affected and displaced by the conflict," said Mr Iynkaran, LTTE's District Political Administrative Secretary, speaking at the function that followed the opening of the TRO office.

"Credit goes to TRO for saving women, children and elders in the Vanni region from famine, disease and other various difficulties in the past because of the economic embargo of the previous government. It is the TRO which served the displaced and affected people in Jaffna during military operations," said Mr.Iynkaran.

He appealed to all local non-governmental organisations in the district to be self-sustainable and not to depend on the international volunteer organisations, which would one day leave the country.

Mr.T.Thavasilingam, President of the Trincomalee District NGOs Consortium, said that the TRO is having permanent root in several countries including the north-east in the island. It serves dislocated and displaced Tamil people in several areas.

Ms Ranji Balasingham, President of the Trincomalee Women Welfare Organisation, former Divisional Secretary Mr. V.Velummylum and Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham of Tamil National Alliance also spoke.
