The Sindhi community in Sri Lanka comprising dynamic business leaders is always looking at opportunities to enhance the lives of needy people in the country.

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility and great humanitarian initiative at a time when the country is going through an economic crisis, the Sindhi Charitable Trust made a significant donation to an approved charity in Sri Lanka, Semata Sarana.

“We are happy to enhance the lives of children and elders of those in need of care. This is one of many donations we make to deserving charitable organisations who are providing humanitarian services. We are pleased to contribute to Semata Sarana and will do so annually,” said Sindhi Charitable Trust (SCT) President Ashok Anil Tirathdas.

Semata Sarana, which caters to all communities in the Colombo North, has been providing education to underprivileged children, free school uniforms and at least two meals a day for 32 years. “We have about 200 kids from Grades 1 to 6 who receive basic education from qualified teachers to make them good citizens. We also provide sanctuary to about 60 elders,” said Semata Sarana Executive Director Rev. Father Leo Perera.

The children displayed their talents and appreciation by singing and dancing when members of the SCT visited Semata Sarana in Mutwal on March 15 to make the donation.

The whole event was coordinated by Sindhi Association Sri Lanka immediate Past President Kishin Butani along with Rev. Father Leo Perera.

Another past president of the Sindhi Association Ramesh Ramchandani and Treasurer of the Sindhi Charitable Trust Ajay Hathiramani were also present. The SCT is an initiative of founder Past President Suresh Pesumal and Vice President late Mahesh Gangaram. M/s Mahesh Dadlani, Sunil Shamdasani, Mukesh Mathani and Gobind Daryanani are also active members of the Trust.
