Surgery, dental treatment and medical consultations were held. Students were provided with toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. Medical volunteers made house-to-house visit to conduct health awareness programme, sources said.

Villagers of Vavuniya North welcomed the KMMS project as they can now avoid crossing army sentry points to got to Vavuniya Hospital or to Mallavi hospital for medical consultations and treatment.

Rural Development Bank also conducted its mobile service in the Vavuniya North coinciding with the KMMS, which conducted its first mobile medical service last month in Veravil in Mannar district. More than three thousand people attended the medical camp, sources said.

The next medical camp of the KMMS is to be held 10 July in Mullaitivu district, sources said.
