Toy-Drive2

Toy Drive - for kids in hospital

We are organising a collection of used toys for child patients at the Kandy Teaching Hospital’s Ophthamology Unit, Sri Lanka.
We are collecting used toys for children up to the age of 12 years. The main purpose of this project is to create a more positive and comfortable environment for children at the hospital, to reduce the fear commonly associated with hospitals and to better facilitate positive relationships between the child and the doctors.

Why only used toys?

First we want to be environmentally responsible by finding a way to put used toys to good use. Secondly, it encourages care and empathy in our own children by donating their toys to someone less fortunate.

The plan
• We plan to send a shipment of toys every 3 months.
• We are looking for used toys only, that are in good condition.
• Colouring / drawing material and books for up to 8 yrs are also appreciated.

How to deliver your toys

Should you wish to contribute monetarily, you can donate towards shipping and handling charges.

Breakfast Program (Completed)

The first project we initiated was sponsoring a food program for the kids of Mudukotuwa West Maha Vidyalaya. Located 3 hours east of Colombo, Sri Lanka, this school caters for 40 kids ranging from first grade to tenth grade.

This project engaged members of the local community, who assisted in the preparation and distribution of food to the students. This ensured that the program was sustainable, and had additional benefits for those in the school's surrounding area.

The Department of Education (Sri Lanka) has initiated a breakfast program as part of supporting healthy eating schemes for schools.

Our next step

We are currently in the planning phase to provide access to technology and connectivity, a sporting program and mentoring for the above school.
