Ten Homeless Families to Get Shelters from Army Soon
[Updated :: 2011-02-05 15:20:18 Hours]

52 Division in Varani last week commenced the second phase of its humanitarian programme of constructing shelter for the poor in Vadamarachchi and Thenmarachchi Divisional Secretariats.

After fruitful dialogues held between the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 52 Division Brigadier Anura Sudhasinghe and Director HABITAT organization Mr. Tony Senevirathne, the latter has agreed to provide building materials for 50 houses for the homeless families in Jaffna.

Foundations were laid for the first ten houses at auspicious time on 30th January 2011 by the GOC 52 Division and a few senior Army officers. Army troops will provide necessary labour in this charitable act.

In the first phase of the housing programme, 52 Division troops built 152 houses for the poor and resettled people in its area in support of the 1000 housing project initiated by Commander Security Forces – Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe.

HABITAT is a Colombo-based Non Governmental Organization which built nearly 3000 houses for tsunami affected families in the north and the south using foreign aid and this is the first time it extends support to the Army’s community work in the north.

Meanwhile, with view to inculcating positive attitudes and promoting personality building among soldiers, 52 Division, under the directives of its General Officer Commanding Brigadier Anura Sudhasinghe, organized a lecture by Dr. Lal Fonseka on 2nd February. Dr. Fonseka who is famous for his inspiring lectures on positive thinking addressed a group of about 60 officers and 400 other ranks serving in Brigades and Units in the 52 Division area at the Division Headquarters auditorium.
