SPUR NSW completes a series of humanitarian projects in Sri Lanka

From our special correspondent

A few of SPUR NSW committee members who are currently in Sri Lanka identified several humanitarian projects that needed attention. 

The first project was assisting a tube well project at Anamaduwa Mudalakkuliya Wijaya School. This school is in a dry zone of Puttalam District  and the students attending the school were without drinking water. The project was successfully completed and it was declared opened by General Kamal Gunaratna.

The second project was to install yet another tube well at Mahakumbukkadawela School. This was coordinated by Grecian Fernando. This project necessitated a purification plant too as the water bed in the area was polluted. The opening ceremony was attended by General Kamal Gunaratna, Nimal Liyanage, Grecian Fernando and Nelka Fernando.

The third project was the distribution of school books to over 250 students, mainly from Ranaviru Families in Kegalle and Mawanella areas. The ceremony was attended by Rear Admiral Sarath Weerasekara, Nelson Piyaratna, Grecian Fernando and Colonel Thalwatta.

The fourth project was to distribute school uniforms, laptops and desktops to about 300 students in Anamaduwa area. This was done in the presence of retired Airforce Commander Roshan Gunatilake.

In addition to the above projects, a ferw Ranaviru families received financial assistance due to various disabilities and their dire financial situation.

The next project of SPUR NSW would be to assist and encourage approximately 400 children of Ranaviru Families in Ampara District.
