Pre-school Children Gifted with New Desks &;amp; Chairs

18 Gemunu Watch (GW) officers and soldiers serving the 523 Brigade in Jaffna recently, mindful of the dire need of the kids at pre-school in the Thachchanthoppu library premises at Navatkuli South, got a stock of desks and chairs prepared at their own expense and donated to the pre-school on the International Children’s Day (October 1).

The initiative, taken by Lieutenant Colonel Sampath Bulathgama, all officers and other ranks in the 18 GW, serves the dual purpose of providing seating and reading facilities for both kids in the pre-school and library - users in the adjacent building.

The donation of the furniture took place to coincide with the International Children’s Day in the presence of teachers and several senior citizens in the area.
