The Sri Lankan Army has opened a new pre-school in Vellamullivaikal, with the assistance of a Dutch non-governmental organisation, reported the Sri Lankan Army's website.
The army proposed the project to Netherlands-based Caridas Cutex, who then provided sponsorship for the school and were subsequently invited to the opening in the presence of the 68 Division of the Sri Lankan Army.

We need your support
Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
