Sri Lankan army soldiers embarked on their latest venture into the civilian life of Tamils in the North-East, with a milk programme.
The 51st Division of Kopay, have gave Tamil children in four Jaffna schools a cup of free milk on July 16th.
The four schools were: St James Maha Vidhyalaya, St. Roches Roman Catholic Vidyalaya, Seevari primary school and Thordarmalee school.
The Sri Lankan army's 'Civil Military Coordination' in Jaffna, proudly states, "The company sponsored the project not as a promotion to its product but as compliance to the request of the 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
