The entire Vanni Tamil population is suffering from starvation.  According to the UN Office of the Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator, to feed a population of 300,000 people for one month, at least 5000 Metric Tons of food is needed.  In the month of February 2009, the Sri Lankan Government allowed 150 Metric Tons of food into the ‘safe zone’.  This worked out to be approximately 400 grams of food to feed one person for an entire month.
