Majority of the families residing in Deva Nagar live below poverty line. Students are finding difficult to continue their studies due to poverty. Hence the AHDCS decided to construct an "Annathana Mandapam (Free Meal Hall)" to provide lunch to one hundred students daily during school days, sources said.

The ACHDS and Deva Nagar Rural Development Society organized the event.

Mr.S.Yogarajah, Secretary of the Deva Nagar RDS presided. Mr.V.Jeevaraj, Trincomalee district co-ordinator of the Sarvodhya Movement also participated in the event.

Swami Tandredeva honored Mr.Anpuratnam, Principal of Varothyanagar Barathi Vidiyalayam by covering golden shawl at the event for his services to the development of rural education, sources said.

At the commencement of the event the residents of Deva Nagar received Srimath Swami Tandredeva Maharaj. Thereafter he declared open the Mother and Child Care Center and the "Annathana Mandapam", sources said.

Swami Tandredeva is the President of the ACHDS. He was born in Chicago in USA, converted to Hinduism and settled down in Trincomalee several years ago, sources said.
