“As responsible corporate citizens it is our obligation and our duty to ensure inclusivity for the differently-able to join the mainstream of life. This newly upgraded Children’s Park with special equipment caters to the special needs of special children will go a long way in providing opportunities for recreation which is an essential ingredient in leading a healthy life” said Dhammika Fernando – President, CIPM Sri Lanka addressing the gathering.

“Experiencing the joy of seeing their faces light up today is our justification for CIPM Sri Lanka’s mega CSR initiative in inclusivity,” he added.

The project was organized and coordinated by the Standing Committee on Member Services & Related Events of CIPM Sri Lanka. The effort to raise the required funds to meet the expenses was started with the “CIPM Great HR Charity Walk & Carnival” on 26th January 2019. This was a charity walk from the CIPM Sri Lanka Head Office at “HR House”, Colombo 5 to Campbell Park, Borella which was followed by a mini-carnival.

All the funds collected at this event was channeled to procure the necessary equipment to upgrade the park to provide inclusivity to the differently-able children. This was the main fund raising event held on to generate the necessary funds for this project.
