The Sri Lanka Army, on Saturday 18 April 2020, assisted the Bohra Community in Sri Lanka to distribute essential food items to hundreds of families in the North amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bohra Community distributed the food items, on behalf of global Community Leader, His Holiness, Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, who has launched a worldwide humanitarian initiative to provide food to thousands of families in COVID-19 hit countries.
The Community was assisted by the Sri Lanka Army in the North, by identifying the families in need, transporting and distributing the items in an organized manner.
The Bohra Community thanked the Sri Lanka Army in assisting them in their distribution drive. "We are grateful to the Army for helping us in this initiative. At times of crisis, it is our duty as citizens of this nation to help our fellow citizens. The Army has always assisted civilians in times of need and we concluded the distribution drive successfully due to their support," Mufaddal Adamjee, local Permanent Resident (PR) coordinator of the Bohra Community said.
