The people of Watamada have not had a bridge to cross over to Rathabalagamwa or Kukulkatuwa for a prolonged period. Though it was the village of Watamada that was missing a bridge, people of Degallara, Hambegamuwa, Senuggala, Wathabalagama, and Kukulkatuwa have also endured numerous hardships as a result.

Hope for a better future….
