In its plans to organise an event that encompasses the objective of ETD, the Executive Committee of ETD together with Janasara and Punarjeeva Fund members have planned an evening of cheer to bring some sunshine into the lives of our special children.

Janasarana is Sri Lanka’s largest poverty-fighting organisation, and since its inception in 2004, it has focused on a rehabilitation program for war victims and soldiers of Sri Lanka forces and other vital services including but not limited to wheelchairs and other living aids to disabled. 

Christmas is for children; with that focus ETD is arranging a Christmas inclusive get together amongst children, both special children and otherwise, to encourage and foster harmony and acceptance from a young age.

The event will include fun games, magic show, popcorn and candy floss, face painting, Santa and gifts for all, music for dancing, eats and soft drinks as well. The event is meant for children to equally enjoy the spirit of Christmas.

3 December is the scheduled day from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Excel World will be the venue host. 

ETD invites you all to support them, to make dreams come true, bring some laughter and fun into the lives of special children and show them that someone cares and they are not alone.

This world is as much theirs.
