St John Ambulance National Cadet camp concludes in Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 August 2002, 20:50 GMT]
More than eight hundred youths of all communities from north to south of the country attended the five-day National and Cadet Camp for the year 2002 of the St.John Ambulance Association and Brigade held at Trincomalee Vipulananda College.

"All should have faith in the present peace process. It is a pity to note that some in our country still express suspicion about the progress of the peace process. Members of all communities assemble here and say their next year national and cadet camp will be held in Jaffna next year. This clearly shows the confidence the youths of the country have on the present peace process," said Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Tamil National Alliance national list parliamentarian at the concluding session of the cadet camp held Sunday.

He appealed to the youths to work hard to create better understanding between all communities and to remove any misunderstanding already existing among the people.

The Chief Secretary of the North East Provincial Council Mr.G.Krisuhnamoorthy participated as the chief guest. He said that peace prevails in the island due to the cease-fire agreement signed by the United National Front government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. The youths of the country should come forward to develop the country irrespective of any differences.

"We have been united and we will be united," said Dr.J.G.Jayatilaka, Commissioner of the St.John Ambulance Association and Brigade addressing the final day event. He said the National and Cadet camp of the St.John Ambulance and Brigade for the year 2003 will be held in Jaffna.

The District Commissioner Mr.S.Thevasahayam proposed vote of thanks.

St John Ambulance Association and Brigade is one of the most important non-governmental organizations in the island with more than fifty thousand volunteers.
