COLOMBO (News1st): Gammadda set foot on a project today to resolve the issues faced by villagers of Kirusthawakkulam in Vavuniya to obtain clean drinking water.

The foundation laying ceremony for a drinking water project was held this morning.

A group including Navy Captain Rohan Dissanayake and the officer in charge of the Cheddikulam Police Station were among those present.

The project is funded by V. Nadesan and is being carried out with the participation of the Navy. 423 people from 145 families are expected to benefit from the project.

“We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to Gammadda and Mr Nadesan who has come forward as the donor for the project,” one villager said.

The struggles of these people to obtain clean drinking water was first brought to light on the 26th of September last year, through the Makkaludan Minnal programme aired on our sister channel Shakthi TV.

“I felt extremely sad upon witnessing the suffering of the people after it was portrayed on the Minnal programme,” V. Nadesan, the donor said.

“Therefore, I wish to thank Shakthi TV. I also wish to thank the Navy as they would be involved in this project”.
