New President of Sri Lanka

Recently the Honorary Vice President of SUROL Mr. Pradeep Amirthanayagam met the newly elected President of Sri Lanka Mr Maithripala Sirisena. SUROL is the leprosy charity the Order - particularly through the Grand Priory of Great Britain - has been working with over recent years.  Just eighteen months ago,  Mr Amirthanayagam  was in Great Britain receiving a cheque from the Order for £10,000 from the Grand Prior of Great Britain, the Much Honoured Baron of Fetternear. Just last year the Grand Prior was in Sri Lanka seeing the excellent work done by Surol, meeting its Patron, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith and presenting the Cardinal with the insignia of Prelate Grand Cross of the Order of Merit.
