The Navy enlisted Miss EMI Croos and Miss KA Croos of Mullikulum as teachers under a special scheme. The letters of appointment were handed over to them by Commander North-western Naval Area last week at the Mullikulum Church in the presence of Rev. Father Newton Dewa and School Principal Devarajan Jayapalan.
Miss EMI Croos and Miss KA Croos were teaching at Mullikulum Roman Catholic School as volunteers prior to their enlistments in the Navy as ordinary ratings. The Navy made arrangements to enlist them following a decision taken by the Secretary of the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development during his visit to the North-western Naval Command headquarters. They will now have permanent employment and a steady income for their families.
The Navy has launched a housing project for the resettled families at Mullikulum. Under its first phase, 60 houses are being built. The Navy also provides assistance to the resettled families to start their livelihoods in fisheries and agricultural sectors with a view to uplift their living conditions.
