Jaffna undergraduates distributed a consignment of school accessories and relief items to 400 students in Molkawa Maha Vidyalaya in Kukulganga recently. The Jaffna undergraduates had jointly managed to collect about Rs 4 lakhs for purchase of school accessories, sufficient for 400 affected students in Grade 1 - 13 in the South.
The organizers directly conveyed their intention to arrive in Colombo shortly to Major General Mahesh Senanayake, Chief of Staff who was formerly the Commander Security Forces - Jaffna for organizing the intended consignment of school accessories.
Commandant at Kukuleganga-based Institute of Peace Support Operations Training Sri Lanka (IPSOTSL), Commanding Officer of the forthcoming Lebanon contingent at the IPSOTSL and the Headquarter Battalion of the Special Forces coordinated and supported the project at the invitation of those visiting Jaffna undergraduates.
Responding to the request of Jaffna University students, Major General Senanayake with the support of the Headquarter Battalion of the Special Forces made all necessary arrangements including transport, food and accommodation for the group of donors, expecting to visit Kukuleganga area.
