For the Tamils of Sri-Lanka the last twelve months has been traumatic to say the least. Over three hundred thousand people were displaced after the war last year and most of them are now resettled in new areas and against their own will. Major casualties of the war are thousands of children, our future generation, made orphans. Having witnessed their parents or relatives killed in front of them, unable to continue their studies with their own kith and kin but being dispatched to an alien land often to school hostels.
As you are aware, SCOT is a premier Tamil charity in the UK and our aim is to help the underprivileged in our homeland. With your help and generosity we have been working effectively alleviating many sufferings of our people. In the last three months we have provided financial support to hundreds of IDP families to resettle in their own homes. Provided help to youngsters to go back to schools.
To address the exceptional need of today, we are forced to reach out to the general public and persuade them to partake so that we can jointly address the dire needs of our people.
“Together we can make a change” to the suffering of our people and the SCOT- General Council is “counting on your support”.
