Former Sri Lanka cricket captain Kumar Sangakkara today said Sri Lankans were indebted to the armed forces for the sacrifices made in bringing about a bright future for the country and that on every possible occasion they would remember these sacrifices.

Making the comment to the Air Force media before departing to Jaffna on the 25th day of the 'Trail'  - a fund raising walk to build a children's cancer ward in Jaffna, Sangakkara also hailed the project vowing to give his fullest support.

Sangakkara flew to Jaffna from Katunayake on a Helitours Antanov 32 flight of the Air Force.

Commenting on the fund raising walk, Sangakkara said this was a much needed worthy cause deserving maximum support, the Air Force website said.
Sangakkara also hailed the service provided by SLAF's Helitours saying it had the potential to reach international level.

    the govenrmnet has enough money for such projects in the south but not in the North.

    The North needs to beg for charity walks from the likes fo Sanga

    Salute you Sanga
