“WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET, BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE”
‘PRARTHANA 2021’ was organized by the Rotaract Club of University of Kelaniya, under the guidance of the avenue of Community Service, as a humanitarian step towards preventing food insecurity and public health crisis in the country caused by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The instigation of this noble initiative was announced on social media on the 5th of August 2021. We requested donations of milk powder, tea, biscuits and adult diapers through our platforms. In addition to these material donations, the received monetary donations were entirely utilized to purchase the aforementioned items.
We are extremely delighted to state that we were able to collect sizeable donations amounting to a total of Rs. 120,000 and that too within such short notice. On the 9th of August, all these were donated to the Colombo South Teaching Hospital, Kalubowila.
We sincerely appreciate all those who joined hands with ‘PRARTHANA 2021’ by dedicating their time, money, and energy to sponsor this meritorious deed.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Nishan Wickramarathe and Finlay Tea Solutions Colombo (Pvt) Ltd, Mr. Lilith Hemachandra and M.Y Hemachandra & Company, Rtn. Sulochana Vanniasinkam and all the well-wishers and Rotaractors of University of Kelaniya for their generous contributions to make this day a success!!
Let’s keep in mind, those who are happiest are those who do most for others.
