Sun, Apr 27, 2014, 11:17 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 27, Jaffna: Sri Lanka Army continues to organize programs to enlighten the residents of Northern Province on the dangers of mines and other explosive devices.

The Army held two awareness programs earlier this month in the Jaffna peninsula to educate the children and villagers in their respective areas.

The programs aim to prevent hazardous incidents that can occur due to explosion of mines and UXOs (Unexploded Explosive Ordnance).

Nearly 250 students and teachers and over 100 adults took part in two mine awareness programs held by the 10 Field Sri Lanka Engineers of the Sri Lanka Army early this month.

The first was organized on 04th at Iyakkachchi and the second was at Nagarkovil with assistance of the demining NGO Halo Trust. Participants were educated to keep the closest security authority informed if one such item was seen without trying to test it.

The Army says it will continue to organize these programs in affected areas as they are getting positive response from the civilians.
