Paying gratitude to ever remembering heroes of our era, who sacrificed their days in the battle field to make our future safe, brother soldiers serving in Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) made another financial contribution to “Brave Hearts” project, solely meant for enhancing welfare measures of War Heroes and their families.

Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, on behalf of all officers and other ranks of the SF-J, handed over the cheque of Rs. 5,000,000/= (5 million) to Commander of the Army Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya at the “Thalsevana" Holiday Resort on Friday (23) evening in the presence of a host of senior officers. “Brave Hearts” project was initiated by the Seva Vanitha Army Branch on a concept of Commander of the Army. The Abhimansala Wellness Resort in Anuradhapura was constructed to look after permanently disable soldiers for their life time under the “Brave Hearts” project.

Commander and all ranks of the SF-J have hitherto contributed a sum of Rs. 11 million for the welfare of injured soldiers and also the families of soldiers killed in war. Earlier, Rs 2 million to “Api Wenuwen Api” War Hero housing project mooted by Defence Secretary, Rs. 2 million to “ranaviru doo daru fund" for scholarships to children of War Heroes initiated by Mrs. Ioma Rajapaksa, wife of Defence Secretary and Rs. 2 million to “Brave Hearts” were given on three different occasions. The latest contribution will help expedite the construction of the Abhimansala II in Matara.

Lt. Gen. Jayasuriya extending his profuse thanks to Commander SF-J for the donation stated that it is our duty to ensure the welfare of soldiers injured in the war, and also the families of those who laid their lives in the noble mission of eliminating terrorism entirely from the Sri Lankan soil.
