War Heroes & Civilians
In a rare symbolic gesture of solidarity with all
ethnicities, the 'M. C. A Hameed Hajiyar Trust', a spiritual development
centre of the Islamic faith inviting the Commander of the Army,
Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake as the Chief Guest on Saturday (5)
gave away a stock of 110 wheelchairs for distribution among tri-service
members, Police and civilians whom the donor organization treats as
'those who need public attention and assistance of the society'.
At the invitation of M. C. A Hameed Hajiyar, President
of the M. C. A Hameed Hajiyar Trust, Lieutenant General Mahesh
Senanayake, Commander of the Army graced the unique gesture of
distribution of this stock of modern wheelchairs worth over Rs. 1.5
million at Gall Face green. The programme, reflective of significant
bonds that prevail between major religious communities and Islamic
devotees would be a stimulant to religious harmony.
This is a continuation of their donation programme
fifth in a row which began in 2016 after donating wheelchairs for
civilians including Army personnel, children and the elderly. The
selection of those recipients was done through the Island-wide Army,
Police and Divisional Secretariats.

year during 23-25 July. This spiritual centre is headquartered in
