Resettled Vavu'natheevu IDPs lack basic amenities

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 July 2007, 14:47 GMT]
Tamil residents of Vavu'natheevu division in Batticaloa district, displaced due to Sri Lanka Army (SLA) offensives and recently resettled in their villages, continue to suffer as basic facilities are yet to be restored, according to Vavu'natheevu Divisional Secretary K. Vimalanathan. Besides lack of food and adequate shelters the villagers are unable to resume agricultural activities due to lack of funds.

4294 houses in Vavu'natheevu have been completely damaged due to war, and and destruction by wild elephants, according to K. Vimalanathan.

ICRC and UNCHR are engaged in constructing temporary shelters for the resettled IDPs.

Schools, roads and other structures have also been heavily damaged by war. Electricity has not been restored, residents said.
