Published on 13 December 2009

Rishard Badurdeen, Sri Lanka's resettlement minister, said refugees do get support from the government and charities. Refugees being resettled in the north, swathes of which were flattened during the final battles, get tin sheets from India to help rebuild their homes, 25,000 rupees ($219) in cash from UNHCR and six months of dry rations from the World Food Program, said Badurdeen.
