a Shramadana Champaign to clean the surrounding of the Primary
Health Centre, Madduvil with the support of Police, Divisional
Health Officers, Midwives and Grama Sevakas on 02 June 2017.
Due to the prevailing weather condition, the Ministry of Health
decided to conduct a programme to control mosquito breeding and
dengue in different areas of the country. Upon the request made
by the Ministry of Health, the Troops of 4 Vijayabahu Infantry

required support to the health teams in the area inspecting high
risk locations within the Jaffna town.
SL Army troops joined in this endeavour to bring consolation to
the people suffering from dengue. Further, civilians also assisted
Army troops in this task demonstrating the cordial relationship
they have with the Sinhalese.
