We are happy to inform that we have completed and handed over 25 temporary shelters in Sampoor, Trincomalee, and are in the process of completing another 10 shelters. Some photos are given below to show the completed shelters. These 25 shelters were funded by the following organisations:
Assist RR - 5 shelters
Sivanarulillam - 4 Shelters
Shri Kanagathurkkai Amman Temple, Ealing, Middlesex, UK - 6
Funds raised through TTVK Singapore - 10 shelters.
Ealing Amman promised to fund another 14 shelters and a number of individuals have contributed funds to build another 4 shelters. We still need funds to complete 7 shelters in the first 55 shelters that we promised to provide. We have been informed that the number of families being resettled in Sampoor has increased and we have been asked to provide more shelters for the extended families, who do not receive assistance from either the government or the INGOs, as these families were not registered as displaced in 2009. Please kindly consider contributing towards building more shelters.
