Divi Neguma To Uplift Living Standards

Apr 5, 2011 1:21:40 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa has said that the main aim of the newly launched Divi Neguma programme was to improve the nutrition levels of the people in the country.

Rajapaksa had made this comment while addressing a meeting of senior citizens and government servants to create awareness about the Divi Neguma programme.

According to the Minister, while Sri Lanka had a very effective health system among Asian countries, the nutrition levels remained low due to the eating habits.

However, Rajapaksa had said that through the Divi Neguma programme, people’s living standards would be uplifted and families will be enabled to generate an additional income as well.
