Respecting the visitors
Welcoming the visitors

A group of Sri Lankan children in Chicago, USA held their annual talent show with the help of their families in August, 2016. Having learnt about Horizon Lanka through a mutual friend, they donated a portion of the collection, 250 USD (38,267.50 LKR) to us.

Mr. Buddika Gajapala and his family visited Horizon Lanka on June 11, 2017. They are a Sri Lankan American family that lives in Chicago, the United States of America. They brought us stationary, USB pen drives, a lot of good quality reading glasses, a robotic unit and an Amazon Kindle Fire e-book reader.

Last Sunday, the October 1, 2017 Mr. Nihal Jayawardhana and Mrs. Nayana Jayawardhana from Colombo visited Horizon Academy, Tantirimale and donated 20 vouchers to by DSI http://www.dsi.lk/ shoes for the students at Horizon Academy, Mahawilachchiya. Each voucher has a value of 1,000 LKR (6.5 USD.) The children were very happy with this generous donation. They also received a bar of chocolate for each student from the visitors. Mr. and Mrs. Jayawardhana, Lieutenant Colonel Kanishka Jayawardhana and his son came to Tantirimale to make this donation.
