Tamil Women

From 1948 to present, there is still genocide in Sri Lanka involving Sri Lankan Tamils. The Sri Lankan Government is still committing acts of violence and human rights against Tamils living in Sri Lanka
The war ended in May 2009, but people are still being killed. For more than 60 years the Tamils have suffered problems from their own government. More than 100,000 people have been killed and 40,000 children have been orphanage. 80,000 women have been left without husbands.
The Sri Lankan Army still kidnaps and kills Tamil women and youth. Tamil women are constantly kidnapped, tortured, and killed. These people need protection. The Sri Lankan army pressures women to join the army and then discharges due to being sick and hospitalized.
Tamil actress Isai Priya was raped and killed by Lankan Army channel 4video. They kidnapped her and raped her. He body was shown on British TV Channel 4 recently. Have you seen this video? It is on channel 4.
Please consider the Tamil women. Thank you.

Praying

Dear Sarva,

I will be lifting the Tamil women up in prayer. I am sorry that this is happening. It is evil and I believe a total affront to God. I know he listens when we cry out to him and I will be praying for miracles for the women of Tamil.

God Bless,
Jennifer

Don't give up!

Dear Sarva,

Hearing this makes me want to cry out. And yet, I know there are so many more situations like this around the world. You are here and you know about it and you cannot give up. Take hope and courage and do what you can. Continue to keep us all updated and spread the word. Even when you feel that you are reaching no one - you are reaching people. Take care of yourself and all the best in your work and efforts.

Love - Amanda
