OfERR (Ceylon) had facilitated the visit of Mr.Naba Gurung, the Programme Officer of PWRDF (Primates World Relief Development Fund), to Kilinochchi district on 10th August 2017.
During this visit, Mr.Naba had met 34 participants including 27 refugee returnees from Mannar, Vavuniya and Kilinochchi districts at the Community Centre in Thirunagar North. He acknowledged the host community for their warm welcome to refugees returning to their places of origin in Sri Lanka while recollecting the fact that Mexican refugees are unable to return to their homeland as they are not welcomed by the host community.
This program also witnessed the provision of agricultural equipment for three beneficiaries from Kilinochchi district under PWRDF program. With some of the refugee returnees sharing their experiences and challenges on their return and reintegration, the program has come to an end.
