Army’s Appeal Bears Fruit; UK Citizen Becomes Foster Father to Boy at Pallai
[2012-02-20 12:15:45]

Security Forces Headquarters - Jaffna (SF-J), with view to upgrading the education standard of Jaffna last year launched a special Foster Parent programme in addition to various other welfare projects for students from low-income families.

A list of students in need of financial assistance to continue their school education was published in the www.cimicjaffna.lk website by the Headquarters SF-J and this effort saw various donors and institutes coming forward to be foster parents of innocent Jaffna children.

Impressed by this effort being taken by the Army, a citizen of United Kingdom after studying the information published in the www.cimicjaffna.lk website during his visit to the island became a foster father to a boy in Pallai on Friday (18).

Mr. David William of UK, having contacted the Civil Affairs Office later visited the house of Alagaratnam Nishanthan (16), a Grade 10 student of Pallai Central College, with officers of the 552 Brigade. Realizing the necessity of someone’s helping hand to his family opened an account at the Bank of Ceylon Pallai branch and promised to deposit money to that account monthly for his education purpose.

Alagaratnam Nishanthan whose father died in 1998 after a brief illness is living with his mother Alagaratnam Puwaneswari at Tharmakerny, Pallai. He has four elder sisters, two elder brothers and one younger brother.

Commander 552 Brigade Colonel W.P.D. Wanniarachchi and Civil Affairs Officer of the 552 Brigade Lieutenant Colonel R.R.S. Jayasekara coordinated the event.

Headquarters SF-J appeals philanthropists to assist the other children too whose details are published under the foster parents column of www.cimicjaffna.lk or www.cimicjaffna.com
