Following requests of civilians reaching Jaffna Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office functioning under the Security Forces Headquarters-Jaffna (SF-J) seeking Army’s assistance on various personal requirements, a similar office was declared open in Kodikamam Wednesday (30.06.2010) morning to offer more effective service to civilians in need.

Brigadier Lal Perera, General Officer Commanding Headquarters 52 Division functions as the Head of administration of this new Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office which will cater to requirements of civilians resident in Point Pedro, Karaveddi, Marathankerni and Chavakachcheri Divisional Secretariats.

This office in Kodikamam was set up to minimize expenditure and time spent by people for their traveling all the way to Jaffna Civil Affairs office from Kodiakmam and other neighbouring areas. Opening of the Kodikamam office will also trim down the swelling number waiting at Jaffna office in need of Army’s support.

Since inception of Jaffna Civil Affairs and Public Relations Office on Hospital Road, thousands of civilians in various social strata sought Army’s assistance to find solutions to their grievances.

General Officer Commanding 52 Division Brigadier Lal Perera who was the Chief Guest of the opening donated push bicycles to seven schoolchildren including three at Ramavil IDP centre to be used for their daily traveling to schools.

Members of nine sports clubs also received stocks of sports ware from the Chief Guest who takes a special interest to promote cricket as a sport in his area.

At the same time, ten inmates at Ramavil IDP centre who found jobs at K.D. Ebert Silva & Sons Company in Colombo, on initiative of Varani-based 52 Division, received their appointment letters from Commanding Officer 17th Gemunu Watch Lieutenant Colonel Keerthi Kottewatta and a representative of the Company.

Priests of Hindu and Christian beliefs, senior officials in the fields of civil administration and education, and a large crowd of civilians attended the opening ceremony.
