Beneficiaries of the Rs. 2,000 allowance given by the government to those who have lost their income due to the prevailing quarantine curfew in Arunapura village have donated it to the Itukama Covid-19 fund.
25 families were eligible from Arunapura village, in Thalawa, Anuradhapura for this allowance and they had requested the Provincial Secretary to deposit the money to the Itukama fund instead, in view of the current economic situation of the country.
Accordingly, along with some other cash donations, a sum of Rs. 87,000 was deposited to the Itukama Covid-19 fund by residents of this village, stated Thalawa Provincial Secretary Anuradha Dissanayake.
