The Abimansala 3 at Pangolla, Kurunegala lying in a landmass of 10 acres is to house 50 more dependent War Heroes, resident in the North Western Province for lifetime care and rehabilitation. The location, rich with bio-diversity and facing the Pathalagoda Lake, bordering the banks of Deduru Oya, provides a soothing and panoramic view that brings mental peace and solace to the inmates.
Abimansala 3, well-equipped with all therapeutic needs to accomodate 50 dependent War Heroes is to be manned 24 hours with medical facilities on hand. A mini hospital, physiotherapy unit, swimming pool, gymnasium, Ayurvedic centre, hydrotherapy unit, recreation centre, entertainment hall and facilities for family members including short-term visits, are among the major features in this complex.
This has been constructed at a cost Rs 250 million, less than what was originally estimated, due to free expertise and labour support, extended by Army Engineers and other well-wishers in different fields.
The first wellness resort was established in Anuradhapura in 2011 and the second in Kamburupitiya in 2012. The Abimansala wellness resort is a concept to house the dependent War Heroes. These wellness resorts will be set up to house dependent War Heroes in other provinces as well.
