Troops of the Security Force Headquarters - Jaffna (SFHQ-J) took another initiative for a humanitarian project for the benefit of Jaffna people, and put up a new house for Mr Ariyavadan Kadhaviyanpullai and his family members in Periyavilan, Jaffna, following a decision taken by Major General Darshana Hettiarachchi, Commander, Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J).

14 Gemunu Watch troops under the 513 Brigade undertook the responsibility of the construction work of the new house with the financial sponsorship, lent by Mr Kanchana Marasinghe who is also a brother of Colonel Chandana Marashinghe who lives in Australia.
