In one such effort, Manitha Neyam Trust along with the Institute of Medical Science developed a Healthcare Assistant (Nurse Aid) training program at the Manipay Green Memorial Hospital. Thirty girls from the North and East of Sri Lanka enrolled in this one year training program.
As part of their program, the students spent time working with the residents of our Siva Poomi Elderly Home. Early this year, when I was in Sri Lanka, I was able witness the love and care the students provide to our Elders at the home. I took the opportunity to provide encouragement to these students for the noble work they are undertaking.
