The Army Denies Appealing for Equipment & Accessories from the Public

(Media Communique)

The Sri Lanka Army, currently engaged in the urgent task of improvising emergency Hospitals and Intermediate Care Centres across the country in order to accommodate COVID-19 patients as a national priority has at no time appealed to the general public to provide the Army with required equipment, accessories or medicines for completion of such projects.

Yet, all those wishing to voluntarily offer assistance to these mega humanitarian projects of national significance undertaken by the Army at this decisive moment in whatever the way possible are most welcome to do so by directly contacting either the National Operation Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) or the Army HQ.

The Army reiterates that no such public appeal has been made to this effect as some Social Media reports have gone viral naming a Senior Officer and mentioning a Telephone No. (Ends)
