[TamilNet, Monday, 03 January 2005, 23:34 GMT]
The Centre for Health Care (CHC), an NGO based in Kilinochchi, said that sufficient professionals, needed by the organisation for the moment, have already arrived in Northeast. Sources at CHC told TamilNet that they have urged the International community to donate liberally towards the relief efforts. More health professionals will be needed later when communicable diseases tend to break, the sources added. CHC have urged other medical professionals who wish to come to the North-East from around the world to arrive during the later part of next month.

Medical professionals from around the world have come in aid of the relief efforts undertaken by the CHC in the North-East. Accommodations are being provided for the voluntary professionals and medical supplies are being sent to the relief camps based on the needs assessed by these professionals.

Additional teams that included the medical students of the Jaffna University were also sent to the Eastern districts of Batticaloa, Amparai and Trincomalee.

CHC officials urged other medical professionals who wish to come to the North-East from around the world to arrive during the later part of next month as sufficient professionals are in Northeast for the moment. More will be needed later when communicable diseases tend to break, CHC sources said.
