Relief programme for families from the North

Civilians arriving from uncleared areas in the Wanni will be provided with food, facilities and a daily allowance, while displaced students who took the GCE Ordinary Level examination in December will be joining other GCE students around the country to take the repeat mathematics paper on January 24.

Senior Presidential Adviser Basil Rajapaksa met with government officials yesterday to discuss relief arrangements for internally displaced persons (IDPs) entering government controlled areas from LTTE-held areas. IDPs are expected from the Vavuniya, Mannar, Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi and Jaffna districts.
The IDPs will be provided with food and drinking water, and other facilities, and a daily allowance of Rs. 100.

UNICEF and the Ministry of Health are making arrangements to provide each IDP family with a hygiene kit and supplementary foods, such as UNIMIX, BP and high-energy biscuits. Officials of the World Health Organisation will help to facilitate the distribution of relief goods.
