Ampara, Sri Lanka
Nucleus Gives Back…
To mark Wesak (the day commemorating the birth, death and
enlightenment of the Lord Buddha) Nucleus entrepreneurs in Ampara participated
in a Shramadana (voluntary labour activities to develop their community). This
activity took place at the Ampara Uhana Childrens Home for the differently abled.
After cleaning the premises and the garden of the home a Bodhi
Pooja was held to invoke blessings on the
home. Later the Nucleus members had lunch with the inmates and officials of the
home. In the evening the Nucleus group together with Children’s’ Home group
participated in an entertainment line up where songs and dances took place.
During the program a welder from Maruthamunai
bought a huge box of chocolate and biscuits and distributed them among the
children’s home members, which they welcomes very much.
One of the highlights was that some Nucleus
members came forward individually to help the children’s home in future in many
ways. They were happy that they got an
opportunity of spending their time with these children. Some of them had brought
their wives and families too for this event.
