Charity Raffle

A night of singing, rice packets and raising money for a great cause.

Albeit the low turn out, we managed to raise $4500 from donations and raffle ticket sales. From the money that was raised will be able to help 180 underprivileged Sri Lankans regain sight.

We would like to give special thanks to all our singers who performed on the night:

Indu Premathilaka

Prasadika Wickremarachchi

Lakshan Fernando - An amazing donor

I met 16 year old Lakshan Fernando at the 2013 Sinhalese New Year Celebrations. A bright, young boy who was eager to listen to our charitable plans for Regain Sight Inc. Lakshan was one of many who decided to take part in our 'Dollar A Week Donation' Program and I was over the moon that the younger generation were keen to participate. 

One year later, and I was keen to see whether Lakshan had maintained his promise to put aside $1 every week for a year for cataract operations for underprivileged persons in Sri Lanka. Lakshan handed me the donation can with a smile so wide it reached both his ears! "Uncle, there's more than $1 a week," he said. And he was right; we counted $92.10. Nothing makes us happier than to see such generosity and particularly from todays youth. I would just like to take the opportunity on behalf of Regain Sight Inc to thank Lakshan for his outstanding effort and support. His donation will give the gift of sight to four more people in Sri Lanka. What a wonderful act, such a small donation can do.

Yours Sincerely, 
Lal Wickramarachchi
