Jamaliya was affected by tsunami badly and about 137 families displaced from this traditional Muslim suburb are sheltered in a playground.

Only 20 of them are residing in "tent houses" and the rest were not provided with such facilities.

TRO Trincomalee district secretariat decided to distribute about 120 tents out of a consignment it received from the German Technical Co-operation (GTZ) under the temporary shelter project to Jamaliya Muslim families, sources said.
