Naval officers donate digital mega phones and LED headlights to Navy Disaster Response Unit
 

A group of naval officers who followed foreign courses at the Wuhan University in China, made several donations to the recently established Sri Lanka Navy’s Disaster Response Unit at SLNS Gemunu in Welisara.

Accordingly, 24 digital megaphones and 24 LED headlights were symbolically handed over to the Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne at the Naval Headquarters today (July, 17). The event was attended by 12 naval officers.

Following a visionary concept of the Commander of the Navy, this Disaster Response Unit of the SL Navy was inaugurated on 25th June in view of promptly undertaking Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) missions, during natural disasters such as floods and landslides.
