[TamilNet, Monday, 13 October 2008, 21:40 GMT]
461 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) belonging to 159 resettled last week in Kaddaippa'richchaan South, Kaddaippa'richchaan East Grama Sevaka (Village Level Administrator) Divisions in Moothoor East are facing severe hardships due to lack of basic amenities.

The IDPs recently resettled in their villages by officials from Trincomalee District Secretariat have complained to K. Thurairatnasingham, a Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP from Trincomalee,that adequate clean drinking water, and latrine facilities were lacking, civil society sources said.

The IDPs have also complained during the period they were displaced the homes haven broken into and the windows, doors and tiles have been removed, but the local officials have not taken any steps to renovate the damaged houses, K.Thurairatnam added.

Meanwhile, people from Ka'neasapuram village in Kaddaippa'richchaàn South have still not been resettled due to security concerns of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA)camps located in the area. These families have been given temporary accommodation in Kaddaippa'richchaàn Vipulananda Vidyalayam and as a result the education of the children of the resettled families have been badly affected.
