Abimansala: A place to heal the wounds of war

For 52 war heroes with permanent disabilities, the ‘Abimansala Wellness Resort’ is a haven of peace and security. Built in a scenic location beside the Nuwara Wewa in Anuradhapura, the resort is equipped with facilities to provide these severely injured soldiers with lifelong care. A staff of 11 officers and 195 other soldiers have been assigned to manage the resort and care for the residents.

Copenhagen is systematic. I haven’t furnished my flight. But The Avenue Hotel has done the home work. A gentleman escorts me to a Jaguar. Vast empty streets (the immense bareness overwhelms) lead to the hotel, which isn’t quite central but is welcomingly warm (I learn my elegant “chauffeur” is the hotel owner).
