The 24th phase of the Anti Dengue Media Operation was successfully completed.
A high public response was received for the programme that centred around the Kaduwela area. The anti Dengue drive was launched by the ITN with the initiative of the Lakhanda Radio. The programme was launched under the patronage of the Chairman of the Kaduwela Pradeshiya Sabha G.H. Buddhadasa. A number of public and private sector organizations extended their support in this connection. Awareness was raised in the public by distributing handbills. Fumigation was carried out and volunteers collected plastic items from house to house. A musical show is being held at the Kaduwela junction to bring people together in combating Dengue.
