Giving priority to most vital sanitary needs of low-income group families in the Jaffna peninsula, 52 Division troops of the Security Force Headquarters - Jaffna (SFHQ-J) completed the construction of 10 new domestic toilets and formally vested them in the recipients on Sunday (10) during a simple meeting, headed by Major General Dharshana Hettiarachchi, Commander, Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J), the pioneer behind the project.

The meeting took place at the Thirumalluwar Community Centre in Chavakachcheri. Mayor of Chavakachcheri Mrs Ramanadan Shivamankai, Member of Urban Council Mrs Paulina Subodani, Army personnel and beneficiaries were present at the event.

At the same occasion, the Jaffna Commander gave away 10 packets of sanitary-ware and cleaning powder bottles to those poor families. The SFHQ-J has already built more than 50 toilets for deserving families in the peninsula in the past one year after those requirements were projected to the SFHQ-J by families living in those areas.
