Meet & Help the Local Community of KALUTARA (Sri Lanka)

We have a non profit organisation and a travel and tourism centre dedicated to help the local community in the city of Kalutara, Sri Lanka by developing a social network that allows us to support local children, farmers and cancer patients in need .

We believe all children should go to school but sadly in many of cases it is not possible for our kids due to the poor conditions of their families. We are in contact with local schools to support them with volunteers and supplies of many items necessary for the kids to attend classes.

We take care of our patients in the Centre for Cancer where they receive Ayurvedic Treatment.

We also help farmers who are in need for different reasons like they are injured or ill or have accidents, while they recover back. Many times the elephants or the rain destroy their Paddy Fields and they can't even feed their children, in that cases we support them while they recover back to normal life.

Items needed: - Educational Books for children and adults in English. - Shoes. - School Supplies: notebooks, colored pencils, pencilsm markers, pens, scissors, glue etc. - Games and didactic material, new or used. - Laptops. - Clothing for children between 5 and 10 years old. - Non-Perishable Foods.
