Launching Yasasa Foundation!

Its with pleasure that we announce the launch of Yasasa Foundation.

Our vision is to see a prosperous and happy Sri Lanka, where children have access to education, health care and the love and support of a family that is financially sound.
With the end of the decades long civil war, this ‘pearl of the Indian ocean’ is turning over a new leaf, Sri Lankans are optimistic in starting a new life and helping each other stand up on their own feet again. Despite their resilience and hopes they can’t do it alone, they need support to get through the hard times.

The organisation expects to attract donations from countries around the world and utilize them for the benefit of needy Sri Lankans. Donations from Sri Lankans are also welcome.

YASASA FOUNDATION is the noble idea of its founders Yasas Vishuddhi Abeywickrama and Sasani Abeywickrama. The endeavour is well supported by many others including family, friends and well wishers. As we have benefitted greatly from the generosity of Sri Lanka and its people, we believe that it’s our responsibility to give back to this dear country that made us who we are.

Sri Lanka is a wonderful country. In our eyes, it’s the most beautiful country in the world. We don’t believe that it’s a small miracle; we believe it’s the biggest miracle on planet earth.

Sri Lanka has a magnificent history that’s been chronicled for over 2500 years. The ruins that have been left behind from that ancient civilization still continue to amaze the world with their engineering ingenuity. Despite its small size the tropical island brings together a rich diversity in geography, flora, fauna, culture and natural resources that can’t be found in countries that are several times its size.

Sri Lanka started a new era in May 2009 after defeating terrorism in its entirety and is once again the happy island it once was. We believe that it’s our duty to lend a hand to this beautiful country in its hour of need and era of new development. People in Sri Lanka are some of the friendliest people you would ever meet, they deserve your support.

YASASA FOUNDATION fulfils this need. It helps you to be a part of that great journey. We invite you to donate a small amount of your hard earned money for this noble cause.
