16 More Jaffna Civilians Receive Artificial Limbs through Army Coordination

16 more artificial limbs, meant for physically-handicapped civilians of low-income groups in the general area of Iyakachchi, Jaffna were distributed during a brief ceremony at 12 (V) Vijayabahu Infantry Regiment Headquarters under the 55 Division of the Security Force Headquarters - Jaffna (SFHQ-J).

As has been the practice, Kundasale Centre for Handicapped at the request of the SFHQ-J was generous enough to bear the cost of those limbs. Earlier, those sponsors visited the area and picked up those needy handicapped civilians for measurements.

Presentation of those limbs took place at the VIR Headquarters of the 552 Brigade in the presence of donors and Colonel Dinesh Nanayakkara, 552 Brigade Commander as the Chief Guest.
