Wedding Bells Ring for 'Abimansala - 2' War Hero

One more disabled War Hero, resident in Kamburupitiya-based 'Abimansala -2' (wellness resort) tied nuptial knots during a wedding ceremony at Dickwella Priyanka Reception Hall on 7 December 2017, organized by the 'Abimansala - 2' staff under the guidance of its Commandant.

‘Siyanewe Api’, an organization in Gampaha area, instrumental in partly sponsoring wedding ceremonies of disabled War Heroes in close coordination with Commandants at such wellness resorts, extended their maximum support to Sergeant L.D.D Pushpakumara of 6 Gemunu Watch (GW) who fell victim to a terrorist booby trap and lost his right leg while trying to regain the control of Adappan town on 24 February 2008 after a bitter fight against the terrorists during humanitarian operations.

Unaffected due to bravery he has had throughout, the wheelchair-ridden Sergeant Pushpakumara as time went on, fell in love with Ms Ganesha Sansala Kumari Gamhewa of Hunnadeniya, Dickwella who happened to visit the 'Abimansala - 2' some time ago at Kamburupitiya.

The wedding ceremony, attended by Mr Saman Jayalath of 'Siyanewe Api' organization and his sponsoring team took place in the presence of a large gathering of friends, 'Abimansala - 2' inmates and other invitees.
