There were 12 women whose husbands as well as their family members have been disappeared in the post war situation. The special fact is that they were disappeared after the war situation within 2008 and 2009 years. The women have inquired about their family members from Grama sevaka, Divisional secretary, police as well as non government organizations but they were unable to get any information about them. As a result of losing their breadwinners the women are living without any security and economic strength. They have to face many social, economic and cultural problems.
There were about nine media representatives consisting of electronic and print Medias in the conference.
The main expectation of the media conference was to reveal their expectations on their family members who were gone missing Media conference on women whose husbands have been disappeared

The main expectation of the media conference was to reveal their expectations on their family members who were gone missing during and after the war, and highlight these issues in the society to build up the discussion on it.

Our husbands and other Family members are alive or not? If they are among livings, where are they? Women are asking by the government.
