A number of community welfare programmes were carried out by Sri Lanka Army troops in the North recently as a part of their social service initiatives. Accordingly a group of children received educational aids during a ceremony conducted by troops of the 15 (V) Vijayabahu Infantry Regiment (VIR) under the 66 Division of the Security Force Headquarters-Kilinochchi (SFHQ-KLN).

The donation was carried out on Friday (02nd June) at the Paramankirei Government Tamil Mixed (GTM) School in Pooneryn. 44 children of the school were presented with schooling essentials including books and bags to the value of Rs.175, 000.00. The donation was sponsored by the 'Soft Logic Life Foundation', of Colombo in response to a request by the troops.

In another occasion 15 pre-school children in Kachchaweli were provided with stationery items each worth Rs. 500.00. The donation was made by the troops of 23 Gemunu Watch (23 GW) under the 552 Brigade of the Security Force Headquarters - Jaffna (SFHQ-J) with their own funds.

Meanwhile, troops of the 18 Sri Lanka Light Infantry (18 SLLI) of the 551 Brigade in Jaffna carried out a 'Shramadana' campaign to clean up the popular 'Sakkottai Flag Area' recently. This popular tourist attraction located at the tip of Point Pedro was found to be badly polluted with the surrounding environment covered with litter left behind by the large crowds that visit the location.

Troops of the 10 (V) Vijayabahu Infantry Regiment (VIR) under the 553 Brigade also carried out a 'Shramadana Campaign' to clean the Kaleimahal pre - school premises and the Grama Seva official's location at Nagarkovil recently.
