Fri, Feb 7, 2014, 12:50 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 07, Colombo: The United States Pacific Army's fourth Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) team concluded its three week training program in Vavuniya today.

This intensive "train-the-trainers" program ran from January 27 February 7 at the Boo-Oya army camp, and during this time, the United States Army's team of medical, veterinarian, and explosive ordnance specialists worked alongside the Sri Lanka Army Humanitarian Demining Unit to train new deminers and re-certify current deminers as part of the Sri Lanka Army Engineers' curriculum.

From 2003 - 2013, the U.S. government has provided over US$ 35.5 million (4.64 Billion SLR) in aid for Sri Lanka's demining activities. An additional $2.7 million (353 Million SLR) in equipment and training will be spent on demining efforts this year.
