“Navamankai Home” in Kopay Open to Share Life with Elderly Women
[Updated :: 2010-08-20 11:48:10 Hours]

“Service to Elders, especially destitute ones is direct service to Lord Almighty” – Hindu Scriptures.

A spacious and comfortable Home for women longing for Love and Affection during their evening life was unveiled at Kopay Thursday (19.08.2010) morning with attendance of a distinguished gathering and people in the area.

This charitable act was funded by Ms. Swarna Navarathnam, a UK-based expatriate in memory of her parents and the new “Navamankai Home” has cost the philanthropist around Rs. 20 million.

Situated in a calm and isolated landscape surrounded by green cultivations, the place offers an ideal environment for old women to engage in spiritual activities such as meditating and praying to get rid of their loglines and mental sufferings.

The management hopes to enroll about fifty elderly women initially and with construction of the upper floor planned to complete in near future, it will be increased up to hundred.

The “Navamankai Home” also cares the women with mental abnormality and provides vocational training for women who find no assistance from anybody for a livelihood.

Chief Kurukkal of Nallai Adeenam Rev. Srilasri Somasundara Paramacharya Swami, the innovator and donor of the “Navamankai Home” Ms. Swarna Navarathnam, Commander Security Forces-Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Former Vice Chancellor University of Jaffna Prof. P. Balasundarampillai, Incumbent Vice Chancellor University of Jaffna Prof. N Shanmugalingam, Visiting Psychiatric of Jaffna Teaching Hospital Dr. S. Sivayogan, a few distinguished guests and a large gathering of people attended the opening ceremony.
