Ex- combatants retrained as bridal designers

Bureau of the Commissioner General of Rehabilitation together with Alliance Development Trust, conducted a short term course on beauty culture and bridal dressing for the trainees at Pempemadu and Puntottam women rehabilitation centers, recently. An official from Bureau of the Commissioner General of Rehabilitation revealed.

Mrs. Dananjanee Palliaguruge steered the training programme, and 36 women ex-combatants received certificates on completion of the training. The certificate awarding ceremony held at Pempemadu rehabilitation center on 14th August, followed by a stunning bridal show, which was staged by the trainees themselves.

"This was amazing; I wonder if anyone of us would ever be able to become beauticians or bridal designers unless we escaped from LTTE and surrendered to the army", one slammed her former associates.

Moreover, the Commissioner General of Rehabilitation handed over another 37 woman ex-combatants who are above 50 years of age, to their relatives on completion of the training.
