Munchee comes to school’s rescue

A water system constructed under the Munchee Samaga Gamata Sarana program for the benefit of students in the Sri Jinarathana Vidyalaya, Horadarawwa, a remote village in the Haputale electorate was inaugurated by Director, Ceylon Biscuits Limited (CBL) Nishka Wickramasingha recently.

The teachers and students of this school had been facing hardship due to non availability of water at the school. This was brought to the notice of the management of CBL by Munchee field staff of the area. In addition to Munchee’s financial assistance, its field sales staff also took part in a ‘sharamadana’ along with teachers, parents and students to expedite construction work.

Speaking at the inauguration, the principal of the school A. Dissanayaka said that eleven years ago he had reprimanded a grade 1 boy for scooting off from school, only to realize that the boy had gone home to drink some water. Students could now pursue their studies without going in search of water, thanks to Munchee.

‘Munchee Tikiri Shishyadara’ scholarships were also awarded at this function.

“We intend completing 100 community development projects during this financial year specially for the benefit of the rural community under the ‘Munchee Samaga Gamata Sarana’ program. These projects would be implemented after carefully evaluating information received from the company’s field sales force and other sources, including media,” said Group Director/Head Marketing and Sales, Ceylon Biscuits Limited Nandana Wickramage.

Last month ‘Munchee Samaga Gamata Sarana’ constructed a bridge to replace a log bridge along with a 2km road for the benefit of the people in the Walagama village in the Galigamuwa electorate.
