TNA Asks For More Donors

Jun 10, 2010 12:59:44 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Tamil National Alliance has asked potential donors to assist with the rehabilitation and resettlement activities in the North. Speaking at a press conference in Colombo, TNA leader R. Sampanthan said that he believes more than 200,000 Tamil Civilians have been displaced and more than 80% of their homes have been destroyed. The United Nations warned that funds for these activities were low last month and they are now having to reach into their emergency funds to make up for the deficit.

Apart from the lack of homes, Sampanthan also stated that many school children were facing hardships and more money was  needed to support the livelihoods of those in the North  such as fishing and farming.
