It's the Sinhala and Tamil new year celebration period in Sri Lanka. People commit their time to visit their relatives, elders with presents as a tradition. It's the season of joy! But meanwhile, there are some people who are unable to afford even their daily needs. It becomes worse with the COVID-19 condition.
So, it's a pleasure to be a part of SL-Charity Project to give a hand for the needy during this period.
Just within a month, we could collect more than we expected to proceed with the plan. So for phase one, We are Launching 3 main projects in 3 different places.
- SL-Charity Elpitiya: @rasinkani
- SL-Charity Balangoda: @madhumunasinghe (event 1) - Already completed , Successfully Finshed with lifetime memories,
@thimira (event 2)
- SL-Charity Monaragala: @damithudaya
So, this is my chance to launch the event in my area, in Monaragala District with the help of my friend, @prasadi.
Well, we decided to select 5 families who have financial difficulties. We could get help from the Grama Niladhari and also our parents to select the best options. Because it's much worthy when they need this kind of hand so badly.
So, we identified 4 families from my village Waguruwela and one from Monaragala. They are elders who don't have any income and another two families have single mothers with school kids. We could visit and talk to them before the budgeting and could understand we have made the right choices.
To provide a pack of food and essentials and books and some stationaries for kids.
