Interview to a beneficiary in Mullaitivu

I am living in Thachadamban with my four children and husband. Two my sons are person with disability. Other one is doing daily odd job and another is a student. I am doing a very small scale home garden to manage daily food consumption, even though I don’t have well. I am fetching water from a neighbor’s house and carrying in buckets and watering to my home garden.

In 1997 I was displaced to an IDP (Internal Displaced People) camp and returned here in 2000. When I returned to my home, I saw my permanent house was fully bulldozed and agro land was used to mine sand to make war related earth bund. Still there are big holes in the land. Then I was displaced in 2008 and returned again on 2010.

JEN has selected me as its beneficiary considering my interest and effort in home gardening. JEN directly visited to my place and checked everything and selected as its beneficiary. I hope JEN assistance will bring very positive changes in our family. It’s happy to think, that doing a home garden with a big agro well sharing my neighbor. My dream is to build a big permanent house through the future yield of home gardening.

JEN cooperative society formation will help us to strengthen our village financially, culturally and socially. Cooperative function will lead us our children in the future to start a big scale business in our village. I thank to JEN and Japanese people for their generous support to develop our life.
