During a ceremony, organized by the 51 Division on Wednesday (20), the new house was warmed and vested in the needy family in the presence of the brainchild behind the project, Major General Ruwan Wanigasoriya, Commander, Security Forces - Jaffna. 11 Battalion Sri Lanka Light Infantry troops, together with 5 Corps of Engineer Services under the supervision of the 513 Brigade Commander donated their technical know-how and manpower for construction of the new house on the guidelines given by the Jaffna Commander.
Appreciative of the Army gesture, the Jaffna philanthropist, Mr Thabothwaran Vishvanathan offered sponsorship for construction of a new tube well for drinking water inside the premises since water is scarce in the area.
