Mr.Elilan hands over the key of the first house to the beneficiary. Mr.Niroshan, Director, SDC looks on.
Each house is constructed at a cost of about Rs: 360,000/= said Mr.G.Niroshan, SDC Director.

Mr.Elilan speaking at the event said several non-governmental organizations are only showing interest in implementing relief and reconstruction projects to rehabilitate the lives of tsunami affected families but not the war affected families.

He commended the services of the SDC in rehabilitation efforts to the war-affected families in the Muttur east villages. SDC is also implementing several reconstruction and rehabilitation projects in the Wanni region.

Ms. Kaaronja, District Political Women Wing, several LTTE officials and village residents participated in the event.
