Maharagama Education Campaign 

Embark together with Best Care animal hospital and the Maharagama Medical Officer of health are working with schools in the Maharagama DS Division to educate primary and secondary school children on how to prevent the spread of rabies, avoid dog bites and to responsibly look after their pets. This program has educated over 500 children so far. This month onwards they will be at several schools in the Maharagama area continuing their work. This is part of the comprehensive Canine Population and Rabies Control Programme.
