The management team of Hameedia, Sri Lanka’s leading menswear specialist invites their loyal customers to join them in celebrating Father’s Day on Sunday 15 June at Excel World. Hameedia’s loyal customers and their families are invited to share their love on this special day with over one hundred underprivileged children who are part of the ‘My Friend’ project. At the event, customers will be able to spend time and interact with children who are part of the project and they will also have the opportunity to support these children with their contributions.
The ‘My Friend’ project was initiated by Hameedia Managing Director Fouzul Hameed to support the growth and education of underprivileged children in Sri Lanka. The ‘My Friend’ project promotes the message of ‘staying in school’ and the project is aimed at supporting the country’s underprivileged children in their efforts to better themselves through education regardless of caste, creed or religion.
Father’s Day is a celebration honouring fatherhood and the influence of fathers in society. A father is a role model for a child and for some, a hero. The Father’s Day event by Hameedia gives customers the opportunity to support the ‘My Friend’ initiative which has funded thousands of less fortunate school children, providing them with basic requirements including school supplies, financial aid, educational materials and daily nourishment. All profits from the purchase of ‘My Friend’ branded merchandise will be channelled towards the project along with five percent of sales from the FH Collection. To support the ‘My Friend’ project and make an important difference in the lives of many children, sign up for the fashion tip updates by texting ‘RegFHGuide’ to 77000.
