KOICA STAFF HELP RES­CUE DRIVER AND PAS­SEN­GERS TRAPPED FROM FIERY TR­ISHAW

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS/CLASSIFIEDS -

On De­cem­ber 5 at noon a three-wheeler was on fire on the road lead­ing to KOICA of­fice, which is the Grant Aid Divi­sion of the Korean Em­bassy, near Borella Junc­tion. Mr. An­der­son, who is in charge of Se­cu­rity at the of­fice and Mr. Thusitha, a driver work­ing for KOICA, had taken quick ac­tion by putting out the fire with fire-ex­tin­guish­ers, equipped on the ground floor and man­age to save the lives of a driver and some pas­sen­gers.

It seems that KOICA’S goal, which fo­cuses on the value of peo­ple and hu­man rights, was demon­strated well on the real field by its staff

KOICA pro­vides its staffs reg­u­lar train­ing on how to act promptly in case of fire. By us­ing this ex­pe­ri­ence, they could prac­ti­cally re­act in such sit­u­a­tions.

Mr. An­der­son ex­pressed his de­vo­tion to the Sri Lankan peo­ple as a mem­ber of KOICA say­ing, “What I did at that time was one of the many things that KOICA, my or­ga­ni­za­tion, is do­ing to as­sist Sri Lankan peo­ple in so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment”.

It seems that KOICA’S goal, which fo­cuses on the value of peo­ple and hu­man rights, was demon­strated well on the real field by its staff.
