A Bicycle for My 13th Birthday – Thank You Dinidu

Aruni Apsara Wewalage

I got a great present for my birthday from Dinidu Samaranayake, the only son of Mr. Nuwan and Mrs. Kumari Samaranayake. I received a new bicycle as the birthday gift from them. The bicycle is black and it is very beautiful. I can ride it very fast. I like it. My old bicycle is broken and I couldn’t go to school by bicycle. I had to walk to school every day. My family can’t afford a new one so I am very glad that Mr. Samaranayake gave me the bike.

I thank the Samaranayake family for helping me. Not only this, they are sponsoring me with a MicroScholarship and also paid for the expenses of the Czech volunteer who we are hosting at our home. I can learn English very fast with her.

I would like to go by bike to school with my friends – Sachini, Nimanthitha, Prabodha and Tharani. But they don’t have bikes because their parents need bikes at work. So, it would be great if those who read this page can help those girls to buy bicycles.
