Two young men have received eyesight with the eyes of a 16 year old schoolboy from Galenbindunuwewa who died in an accident.   
The deceased Dakshitha Imesh Dhanapala of Getalawa in Galenbindunuwewa was a student of Aluthdiulwewa Maha Vidyalaya. He had died of injuries caused to his brain in an accident on May 31.   Officer In Charge of the Eye Donation Society in Anuradhapura branch W.M.S.Chandana said the deceased child’s parents had consented to donate his eyes and that the corneas removed from his eyes were immediately dispatched to the Eye Donation Headquarters in Colombo. He said cornea grafting was performed on two young men who received eye sight even before the funeral of the boy.   Branch officer Chandana said hundreds of patients were awaiting cornea grafting at hospitals and that it was a noble deed to donate eyes in this manner.
