Sri Lanka: School destroyed by tsunami is rebuilt by SOS
The Minister of Child Development and Women's Empowerment, Mrs. Sumedha G Jayasena, inaugurated the school in presence of SOS Children's Villages President Helmut Kutin and many other representatives of SOS Children's Villages. Over 2,000 people, mostly students' parents, witnessed the ceremony. SOS Children's Villages of Sri Lanka rebuilt the almost completely destroyed school building and handed it over to the community in November 2008.
The minister applauded SOS Children's Villages for taking action in ensuring the future of Sri Lanka's children by ensuring their education.
