The IDP Relief Project of The Rotary Club of Colombo

While The Sri Lankan armed forces have succeeded in defeating the terrorist campaign, which attempted to divide the country based on ethnic lines, many innocent people who were caught up in the conflict used as human shields (hostages), remain injured, separated from their families, homeless and displaced. The Rotary Club of Colombo is part of a coordinated District wide effort to provide relief to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP). We have decided to call this “the IDP Relief Project”. The Rotary Club Of Colombo is raising funds to provide relief to the IDP’s any amount will be welcome.

Children Our Focus
The focus of our Club is on the children- On recommendations from counselors and rehabilitation specialists we were advised to provide occupational relief by way of a school pack, made up of assorted exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, crayons. As you know education is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. Providing the means to develop writing at this time is critical. In addition to it was suggested to keep the children occupied with recreational sports. We will therefore provide sports equipment made up of soccer balls, volley ball sets, cricket sets, carom and draughts boards.

The School Pack is made up of
6 Nos. 80 page Single Side Ex. Books.
6 Nos. 120 pages Single Side Ex. Books
1 No. CR Book 1 Quire
3 Nos. Blue Ball point Pens.
