May 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 conducted two awareness programs recently in the Jaffna peninsula and nearly 200 residents exposed to mine risks in Nagarkovil West and Kudatthanai areas were informed of the programs that were held in the community centers of the respective areas.

The two awareness programs were conducted by 10 Field Sri Lanka Engineers under the Disaster Mitigation Project in Nagarkovil and Kudatthanai.

The programs aim to prevent hazardous incidents that can occur due to explosion of mines and UXOs (Unexploded Explosive Ordnance) and the civilians were educated on these explosive devices.

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