Lankan-German teamwork boosts IDP health facilities!
Germany has provided medical equipment worth one million Euro to Chettikulam Hospital near Vavuniya.
This provision has been made against the background of the longstanding commitment made by the German Red Cross to Sri Lanka.
A German anaesthetist is currently stationed at the hospital, training its Sri Lankan staff on the job.
German Ambassador Jens Plotner, who made a field-visit to Vavuniya and Mannar to gain firsthand information on the ongoing resettlement process, lauded German-Sri Lankan teamwork.
He said: "Chettikulam Hospital has borne the brunt of maternity care of IDPs.
"Even after the full settlement of all IDPs, German contribution will remain for the local population to benefit from."
