Donation for Api Wenuwen Api

Colombo: Helping to free the country from the clutches of terrorism is not only the duty of the soldiers but also of the citizens of the country. This was amply proved yesterday, November 10 when Tamara Nilanthi Katuwawela, a resident of Thumbowila Piliyandala at a special ceremony held at the Ministry of Defence donated Rs. 100,000 to the Api Wenuwen Api Fund.

Secretary of Defence Gotabhaya Rajapaksa officially accepted the donation at the Ministry premises last morning.

Ms. Tamara Nilanthi Katuwawela said that she was moved by the dedication of the Secretary of Defence to uplift the soldiers who work so tirelessly in the Northern Province.

She stated that the money was initially for her parents' trip to India. However, they decided to donate the money for this worthy cause. Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa expressed his sincere gratitude to this lady who donated this amount for the brave war heroes.

He further said that it was important to felicitate the brave soldiers and express gratitude for their hard work.

Jinadasa Katuwawela, father of Nilanthi Katuwawela was also present at the ceremony.
