January 28, 2014

DIMO recently invited a group of students from Sandagala Special School (Deaf and Blind Students), Kurunegala to Colombo, to experience many activities including an exhibition by George Keeth Foundation at Green Path. This was organized under the guidance of Mrs Jeevani Pandithage and coordinated by Mr Anura Wijesinghe. For several years, DIMO is playing an active role in helping students of Sandagala Special School. This special group of students were selected based on their artistic skills, which was recognized locally and internationally. Breakfast for the students were organized at SSC with the participation of Mr Ranjith Pandithage. Sports celebrities – Dilhara Fernando , Chamara Kapugedara & Thilina Kandambi came over to meet the children, which was a surprise for them. Mr & Mrs Vijitha Bandara were also present at Kalapola. Thereafter on their way back, lunch was organized at Nittambuwa for the students. The Principal and the students were highly appreciative of this kind gesture from Mr and Mrs Pandithage and DIMO.
