An emotional event took place yesterday (19) as the young girl, who had her arm amputated while seeking treatment for fever at Jaffna Teaching Hospital, returned to school. Little Vaisali, whose arm was amputated near the wrist, was met with tears of joy and compassion from her fellow students and teachers.
Upon her return to the Jaffna Hindu Primary School, Vaisali was greeted with a bouquet of flowers from her classmates. The school’s development association, along with the principal and teaching staff, organized a special event to encourage and support her.
During the event, the School Development Society pledged to provide Vaisali with all the necessary facilities for her future education. Additionally, several voluntary organizations in Jaffna have stepped forward to offer their support and encouragement to the young girl.
A medical team from the Jaffna Teaching Hospital has volunteered to provide eight-year-old Vaisali with the psychological treatment she may require to cope with her challenging situation.
The trial concerning this unfortunate incident is scheduled to resume on the 27th of this month.
