In its endeavour to inspire the children of underprivileged families to achieve in the field of education, the Welfare and CSR Society of SJMS Associates carried out yet another distribution of school materials on 7 and 8 December 2013, in the north-east region of the country. The beneficiaries this time were 220 children of Dehiwatte Maha Vidyalaya, Muttur Sinhala Maha Vidyalaya, Neelapola Vidyalaya, Kooniththeevu Navalar Vidyalayam, Sampoor Sri Murugan Vidyalayam, Sampoor Maha Vidyalayam, Kiravatkuli Sivasakthi Vidyalayam and Sinnakkulam Vidyalayam. It is noteworthy that most of these are schools located in remote areas, the roads leading to them being not quite favourable to many. School bags, shoes and stationery for the year 2014 were given to the children at 3 separate gatherings held at Dehiwatte Maha Vidyalaya, Dehiwatte; Cheneiyoor Central College, Kattaparichchan, Muttur; and Sinnakkulam Vidyalayam, Thoppur. The SJMS Welfare and CSR Society wishes to express its appreciation and gratitude to Col. Vikum Liyanage and Lt. Col. Lilan Ranchagoda of the 5th Regiment – Sri Lanka Artillery for the immense support extended to this program. Their coordination skills greatly helped the Society to engage in this worthy cause with ease.
