Relief items from North reach flood victims

[TamilNet, Friday, 23 May 2003, 08:27 GMT]
A convoy of trucks containing goods donated by various non-governmental and civil organisations from the North reached affected villages in the South yesterday. The trucks are delivering much needed emergency items to both Tamil and Sinhala villages affected by the recent floods.

A truck containing goods donated by the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO) was one of a convoy of vehicles taking part in a two-day humanitarian relief operation.

Items donated by TRO included bed rolls, blankets, roofing sheets, kitchen utensils and clothes. Officers from the organisation visited Kalutara yesterday to deliver urgently needed relief items to flood victims.
