Addressing a gathering of civilians newly resettled in their original homesteads at Kovilvayal in 552 Brigade area Maj.Gen Hathurusinghe made this request specially from Jaffna youths who are asset not only to fast developing Jaffna but to the whole island.

This special occasion occurred on Friday (02) when the Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office of the SF-J organized a function to distribute cattle among some families in order to back their poor economy. Those eleven cattle were distributed by the Army under the welfare project being carried by the Security Forces Headquarters - Jaffna for the Jaffna civilians with prime intention of uplifting their livelihood. Animals were brought from the south and given away to five farmers living in Iyakkachchi and Tharmankerny areas.

Headquarters SF-J, before giving those animals to farmers, sent them to Seeppukulama agriculture training centre in Anuradhapura and trained them on animal raring and home gardening. SF-J Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office has hitherto given this training to 28 male and female Jaffna farmers with coordination of Seeppukulama agriculture training centre. Cattle were given to other twenty five families earlier by the SF-J.

Addressing the large gathering, commander SF-J further assured that Army would continue with this civic-oriented welfare programme started in January 2010 in Jaffna. He expressed hope that life of people in Iyakkachchi area will be more benefited with opening of the Elephant Pass saltern in near future.
