Shramadana Program Held On 16.03.2014 At Bufard Samaranayaka & Wilfred Perera Elders Home Koratota - Kaduwela To Mark The International Womens' Day - 2014

This Shramadana Program was organized by the Sri Lanka Women Lawyers' Association at Bufard Samaranayaka & Wilfred Perera Elders Home, Korathota, Athurugiriya. We are very grateful to our Co-Vice President, Mrs. Sandhya Thalduwa, for organizing this event.

Though it was organized to mark the International Women's Day, it was not limited only to women, as elderly men too were brought in from the streets, mostly sick and destitute males with nowhere to go. Some have wandered away from relatives who had neglected to look after them. Some had been left on the road by their own children. This home supports around 30-35 inmates with that sort of history.

They were in the age range between 60-80 years including some who were bedridden. Office bearers of the Sri Lanka Women Lawyers' Association with the assistance of helpers, bathed, washed and cleaned them and donated new clothes to wear. With the assistance of a Barber, we managed to shave the male inmates and cut their hair. We cleaned the premises and their beds and donated food and medicine as well.
