The newly-constructed blood bank at the Polonnaruwa General Hospital was declared open by President Maithripala Sirisena on Saturday.

A total of cost of Rs. 109 million was incurred for the construction of this blood bank.

A group including Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine Rajitha Senaratne were in attendance.

Speaking at the event, President Maithripala Sirisena stated that there is no division with the world. There were certain divisions in the world, because of our country, during the reign of the previous government. Specially because of the resolution on Sri Lanka which was passed at the UN Human Rights Council, the world was divided. Because of that the number of countries which rendered their assistance to Sri Lanka reduced drastically. Most countries avoided assisting Sri Lanka.

He added that as a new government, we have received immense international support without any division.

Scholarships were distributed to students and university students in the Polonnaruwa District under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena.
