Living conditions of Disabled persons and their needs in E&N

There are hundreds of families in the East and North of Sri Lanka where at least one member is suffering from physical disability due to the war.  In Mullaithivu district alone, there are 3351 disabled persons, of whom  1786 persons are disabled due to the war.  Most of the disabled people have had artificial limbs fitted but are still facing extreme hardship due to lack of suitable job opportunities to re-start their livelihood. Assist RR met representatives of disabled families on 16 Jan 2014 in Mullaithivu, which enabled Assist RR to realise the extent of the problems, the disabled families have been facing since the end of the war.
