Addressing the event, Additional Provincial Director of Education Mr.S.Subramanaiam said northeast province has no modern hospitals with medical facilities to meet the special needs of school children who are hard of hearing or students with impaired vision.

Mr. Subramaniam who was in charge of this project further said seven mobile medical camps were held in three education zones of the Trincomalee district to identify hearing impaired and eye defect students. 178 students were identified suffering from eye ailment and other defects, sources said.

About seven hundred hearing impaired students are waiting for medical examination, as the Trincomalee general hospital is not equipped with necessary medical equipment, said Mr. Subramaniam.

Trincomalee zonal director of education Mr.K.Thilakaretnam also participated in this event.
