Small Steps of raising funds in Sydney, Australia

MnSLFF receive Aus.$10,000 from our friends in Sydney, Australia. We wish to acknowledge with deep gratitude the donation of Aus. $10,000 received from our friends in Sydney, Australia. Your support and contributions will help us realize our mutual goal of helping the Tsunami Survivors rebuild their homes and their livelihood.

In this regard we wish to recognize the special efforts of Gamini and Vasithi Iddawela and Gihan and Nimmi Ratnayake for taking the initiative and thank all those who participated in the fund raiser events held down under and made it all possible. We look forward to your continued participation and support for the successful completion of the project.

The first small step of raising funds in Sydney, to complement the effort in Minnesota, kicked off 29th of May, and raised $1,300 for the cause. The guests were treated to several Sri Lankan culinary delicacies provided by families of four friends living in Sydney. Being a picture perfect Sydney winters day, added to the enjoyment of the day.

Further activities were conduced in the month of July, being a dinner following similar lines.

On top of the funds raised, several individuals have made firm monetary commitments for the cause, and completed the initial activity by August 05, and remit the funds to Minnesota-Sri Lanka Friendship Foundation.

Plan to make this an ongoing activity, and contribute to the ongoing sustenance of those who are settled into the Hikkaduwa community.
