Kinniya – A picturesque location that lies on Sri Lanka’s eastern coastline – Kinniya is home to 75,435 persons whose primary sources of income are fisheries and agriculture.

With 31 Grama Seva divisions, Kinniya is considered to be a high population density area in the Trincomalee district.

Sadly, the Trincomalee district has been under threat from a Dengue outbreak. It has been wrecking havoc in the entire district, especially in Kinniya.

Gammadda steps in

A medical programme has been initiated by Gammadda to provide relief to families affected by Dengue in Kinniya. Our News 1st team is currently engaged in a shramadana campaign in the area to help clean and rid of possible Dengue breeding grounds.

The initiative was launched to help prevent the spread of the disease and educating the residents in the area on preventing Dengue.
