    September 12, 2014

    The 'Mihindu Seth Medura' healing home for disable war heroes is to get a new Hydrotherapy Facility for the treatment of its inmates. A ceremony was held yesterday (11th September) to lay the foundation to the new facility under the patronage of the Chairperson of the Seva Vanitha Unit of the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development Mrs. Ioma Rajakasa.


    Once commissioned the twenty-eight million rupee facility will enhance the existing state of the art facilities available at ,Mihindu Seth Medura, in Attidiya, Dehiwela that are specifically designed to for the use of persons with physical or mental impairment. The Hydrotherapy unit will be designed and built by the Young Constructor's Forum.


    The core concept of Mihindu Seth Medura is to establish a 'Home Away Home' for the gravely disabled war heroes who are handicapped, with movement restricted to a bare minimum and require continuous care, attention and assistance to meet their daily activities. They are cared for and looked after while retaining their dignity. Special care is taken to ensure their physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing.


    Training and mentoring is provided to these soldiers so that they will be encouraged and motivated to carry out their day to day activities on their own or with minimal assistance.


    Members of the Maha Sangha, Vice President of the MOD&UD Seva Vanitha Unit Mrs. Indu Rathnayake, the staff and inmates of the healing home were present at the occasion.
