A group of Indian businessmen arrived in Sri Lanka recently and ceremonially handed over a water purification plant donated by them to Sri Rahula Maha Vidyalaya, Maradankadawala. The occasion was also attended by Lions District 306B2 Governor Lion S.K.  Ravindran and First Lady Lion Mangaleshwari.

 The group also donated school books and stationery items to students at the Nagalawewa Primary School, Kimbissa. The 14 Indian businessmen who arrived in Sri Lanka were all members of the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro. The project was a result of the twinning programme of the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro with the Biyagama North Lions Club.

The students of Sri Rahula Maha Vidyalaya in Maradankadawala, in the North-Central Province were greatly inconvenienced by the lack of potable water. Daily they had to carry water from their homes in addition to their school books. The Biyagama North Lions Club contacted the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro in India, which agreed to finance a new water purification plant for the school. 

“It was a great gesture on the part of the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro,” said Lion Shiranee Rajapaksa, President of the Lions Club of Biyagama North. “In Maradankadawala, the students were experiencing great difficulties due to the lack of clean drinking water. When we approached the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro, they readily agreed to help. Special mention must be made of Lion K.P. Nagaraj who coordinated the projects and the visit on behalf of the Lions Club of Bangalore Metro.”
