Digana riot victim’s family needs help

W. G. Tilaka Pathma Kumari of Ambale, Medamahanuwara has been undergoing untold hardships and sorrow ever since her husband H. G. Kumarasinghe was killed in the racial riot in Digana about a year ago.

Several politicians had pledged that they would support her and her children but none came forward after her husband’s funeral, she told.

A mother of two, Tilka undergoes severe difficulties today. Her daughter studies in Grade 10 and her differently-abled son is in Grade VI. She has to look after her parents as well. She now awaits help promised by politicians and others at the funeral.
