Provide aid to war affected in Vanni, Sri Lanka

by Standing Committee of Tamil Speaking People (SCOT)

Annual Report 2011

We were able to witness almost all the IDP population being resettled in areas sometimes unknown to them throughout their lives. This created a situation for family breadwinners having to re-train and start a new life from the scratch. We are seeing many orphans, widows and vulnerable old people still unable to carry on with their normal lives following the war even after three years. we are working with many front line volunteer organisations and NGO’s  engaged in providing livelihood programmes and rehabilitation projects to meet these challenging demands.

 Beginning of this year in January, the entire Eastern province experienced severe flooding following unprecedented downpour almost never seen in this part of the world before. SCOT responded swiftly and sharply to alleviate the suffering of our people in the East by contribution £8500 within days of the outbreak, channeling the funds through YMHA (Young Men’s Hindu Association) and EHED (Eastern Humanitarian Development of the Bishop of Trincomalee and Batticaloa).

Due to the war many of our past beneficiaries themselves are displaced. We are contacting many of our past beneficiaries directly in Sri Lanka with a view to understanding their current needs and how we support their current projects. This will see us effectively directing our resources at the most urgently needed areas in the North and East affected by the war.
