Due to terrorists activities that took place during number of years, many people in the Northern Province had to leave their villages and places of origin to find safety. As a result people lost their livelihood. With the eradication of terrorism there is peace and harmony prevailing in the country. Fishermen in Jaffna have now come back to their villages and have restarted their occupations.
