A considerable number of beggars are seen roaming around the Ragama area, some of whom do not maintain proper health practices. Residents of the area raise concerns over this because these beggars are given food by the Navy officers of the Welisara Navy Camp from which several Covid-19 infected officers were found.

    It would be more appropriate to call them HOMELESS people instead of calling them beggars.

    What about the poor people of this country who scrummage on morsels and do not beg? Do our leaders have a heart to alleviate their burden?

    Dhammika, they are still at Ragama and you have the option and opportunity to dry your tears.

    A good and simple photo study in contrasts. The haves and the have-nots. Even the comments running between compassionate and not, saying it all.

    It is inhumane to ignore them. Whether they are Tamils or Muslims or Sinhalese, they deserve to have help from the government.
