(Carrollton, TX)—Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries, workers and lay leaders are reaching out to thousands of Sri Lankans displaced by the most recent battles between the government and the Tamil Tigers rebel group. The United Nations estimates that about 50,000 civilians are trapped by the conflict. They are crowded onto a tiny strip of land that has been designated by the government as a “safe zone.”

Workers representing GFA are providing for the needs of people in the government-run camps. The workers are delivering sandals for the people, many of whom wore out their own sandals walking to the camps. They are also providing books for the makeshift schools operating in the camps, along with food.

The government-run camps are not allowing volunteers to visit the camps because they cannot guarantee their safety. However, GFA workers in that area have petitioned the government for permission to visit the camps and offer assistance. A doctor working in the camp described the situation to a BBC journalist.

“The situation is difficult to explain. There is no food, no water supply, no toilet facilities, and no safe area. They are staying under the trees, everywhere. We need more than 400 or 500 tons of food a week, but we are receiving only 60 tons. And there’s only rice and dahl (Asian lentils). It’s not enough for these people. There’s no milk formula for the children, no vegetables, no meat, nothing,” Dr. T. Varatharaja said.

There are reports of individual Believers ministering to the people in the camps. These Believers are thought to be among the displaced themselves, and are offering spiritual comfort to their peers.
