KOICA STAFF HELP RESCUE DRIVER AND PASSENGERS TRAPPED FROM FIERY TRISHAW
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”.
