A delegation of the Malteser International led by its Sri Lanka Country Co-ordinator Mr.Lawrence Oduma and Anbu Illam officials led by Mr.C.Kumarakuruparan, Trincomalee District Deputy Director of the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) met Wednesday held at the office of the children home to sign the agreement.

Malteser International delegation comprised Ms Maren Paech, Co-ordinator Partner Projects-East and another official. The children home delegation comprised Ms Rajeswary Thedchanamoorthy, Secretary of the institution and Mr.N.Rajanathan, a member of the committee.

"Anbu Illam" is now under the supervision of the TRO with a Committee of Management

The first phase of the reconstruction was completed with a two-storey building to house female children.

Male inmates of the Home are provided shelter in the prayer hall due to lack of space. Once the second phase of the project is completed they will be shifted to the new building, TRO sources said.

At the conclusion of the discussion, Malteser International delegation congratulated the three students of the institution who recently excelled in the island wide religious competition by winning gold medal and other prizes.
