Another Group of Needy Children Enjoy Their Day at Subramaniyam Park
[Updated :: 2011-10-08 17:25:20 Hours]

Soldiers serving at Uduvil-based 513 Brigade took a time off to organize a “Fun Day” for innocent children living at six Children’s Homes in 513 Brigade area on Saturday (08).

Coinciding the International Children’s Day, nearly 200 children of Manippay Elim, Uduvil Ark, Anaikottai Arulmani, Marathanamadam Arulvaham, Anaikottai Bethanya and Wadukkoddai Betahnya Children’s Homes were taken to the Subramaniam Park in the Jaffna town where a lot of events had been organized by the Civil Affairs Office of the 513 Brigade.

In addition to various sports, children enjoyed music and dancing events at the park while tasting chocolates, ice cream, snacks and soft drinks given free by the Army.

Many of those inmates are deprived of parents’ affection while a few others suffer from some kind of disability. Most of them have never been to Jaffna or anywhere else before.

Day’s programme culminated with lunch arranged by the 513 Brigade for all children and members of their administrative staffs. Each child received a parcel of gift which included exercise books at the departure.

Sales Manager of Kandos Chocolate Company Mr. Senaka Samantha, Elephant House Jaffna Branch and Elight Fruit Drinks Company at Chankanai extended their hand of generosity in organizing the snacks and soft drinks.

Jaffna Municipal Council also cooperated with officers of the Uduvil Brigade in conducting the programme.

Commander 513 Brigade Brig. Pradeep Silva and senior officers of the 51 Division were present to spend their time with children.

Civil Affairs Officer of the 513 Brigade Lieutenant Colonel Sarath Amarasinghe coordinated the programme.
