[TamilNet, Monday, 24 June 2002, 20:54 GMT]
"Our services should reach the masses suffering in the remote villages in the Mutur-east for want of enough food for their survival," Mr. Ramalingam Thirkumaranathan, Attorney-at-Law made this observation when delivering his presidential address after being installed as the 24th President of the Trincomalee Rotary Club Monday evening.

The induction ceremony was held at the Trincomalee Rotary House with District Rotary Governor Mr. N.Pathmanathan who is the Deputy Secretary to the Treasury, Sri Lanka as the chief guest. Ms Myrna P.Atienza, President of the Katugastota Rotary Club was the guest of honour.

Mr.Thirukumaranathan said, "Reports have come that people in about thirty villages in the Mutur-east suffer malnutrition, as they have not been provided with nutritional food. Those villagers feed themselves with yams and other green leaves found in their area for their survival."

He said under his tenure he would not limit the implementation of social development programmes only to urban areas but also would be extended to remote villages. Rotarian S.Jayashankar has been nominated Secretary of the Trincomalee Rotary Club for the current year.
