Cheanaiyoor IDPs to be resettled

[TamilNet, Thursday, 23 October 2008, 19:07 GMT]
144 members of 44 internally displaced Tamil families, who had fled from Moothoor east in Trincomalee district in 2006 due to military operations of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), were transported in six state sector buses Thursday from several welfare centres in Batticaloa district for resettlement in their village Cheanaiyoor, a once flourishing town and now deserted, civil society sources in Trincomalee said. The buses traveled via Vaakarai, south of the Trincomalee district, with police protection.

The families were temporary sheltered in the abandoned buildings of the Cheanaiyoor Central College. The buildings of the college have been damaged due to the April 2006 military operation of the SLA.

All houses and properties have been damaged and abandoned due to military operation.

Cheanaiyoor is located in the Moothoor east next to the village Kaddai pa'richchaan.

Resettled IDP families have been provided with relief and cooked meals until they clear their damaged dwellings and abandoned wells which have been abandoned for more than two years, divisional secretariat sources said.
