The Sri Lankan army was in the Kanapathypillai school of Navakkadu in Jaffna on March 26, to donate an electric water pump.
Soldiers from the 522 brigade also gave the Tamil school children shoes. See more here.
The donations by Sri Lankan soldiers in Tamil schools continues despite pledges from the new government that it the military had ceased its role in civilian affairs.
Addressing the UN Human Rights Council last month, Sri Lanka foreign affairs minister, Mangala Samaraweera said:
"Just days after assuming office, the President replaced the former military governors of the Northern and Eastern provinces of the country with two senior former civil servants. This set in motion the process of strengthening civilian administration in these provinces including the cessation of military involvement in civilian activities, review of high-security zones and releasing land for resettlement of the internally displaced."
