Surrey Tamil Community donated 100 sets of desks and chairs to Sampoor Maha Vidyalayam in Trincomale

Further to Assist RR’s appeal for assisting displaced people of Sampoor, Surrey Tamil Community (STC) came forward to assist Sampoor MV and donated 100 sets of desks and chairs to the school. People of Sampoor were displaced in 2006 due to the war and are still living in four welfare centres around Sampoor. Two Sampoor schools including Sampoor MV are functioning in the hostel of Chenaiyur MV. These two schools have been using damaged and unsuitable furniture that were borrowed from other schools. When Assist RR visited these schools last year, the pathetic conditions were visible to the trustees and made an appeal for assistance. STC has now raised funds amongst their members and donated £2050 towards this (see photos below showing conditions before and after the donation on 11/03/15). Assist RR, on behalf of Sampoor displaced people, would like to express its gratitude to STC members, who contributed to this kind donation as follows:

a) Kandiah Family (Via S Thayaparan)          £1250.00
b) Mr M Kumar                                                   £187.50
c) Dr T Gowripalann                                           £187.50
d) Mr K Karunaharan                                         £125.00
d) Mr N Ravindran                                             £125.00
