Foreign aid to furbish Jaffna Medical Faculty: Dr. Raviraj seeks Prof. Peiris’ assistance
Head of the Medical Faculty of Jaffna, Dr. S. Raviraj, requested Education Minister Professor G.L. Peiris to help assist in obtaining necessary Government permissions needed to receive aid from countries like Austria and India and private companies like Lycamobile, a United Kingdom-based company, as they have expressed interest in helping to furbish the Medical Faculty's building and provide the needed equipment.
This took place at a meeting held at the Education Ministry Office in Colombo on 16 October. Peiris had said he would look favourably at this request. (PA)
