A project to ensure at least an egg to a child of families in Jaffna affected by malnutrition will be implemented, Kumudu Wadugedara of the Civil Affairs and Public Relations office of the Jaffna peninsula said yesterday.
He said malnutrition among the students in the peninsula is acute. He added that the Government has given complete access to the people in the Peninsula to have contact with the outside world. State and private telecom companies are operating in the Jaffna district.
The Sri Lanka Telecom has provided more than 27,000 land connections and 150,000 mobile connections to customers in the Jaffna district.
Waduge was of the opinion that the agriculture sector in the peninsula will see an unprecedented development in the coming years with the removal of the ban on fertilizers.
