The Foundation of Goodness is a holistic rural development model that seeks to bridge the urban-rural divide in Sri Lanka via 10 empowerment divisions across 900+ villages island-wide, and reached over 307,000+ beneficiaries in 2022 alone by way of 15 Empowerment Centres, free of cost.
The Foundation of Goodness first began supporting the Sujatha Special Needs Home in Kalutara in September of 2020 when we were made aware of their struggles in meeting the needs of their residents and maintaining a good standard of living for them despite the hard work put in by the staff.
Thanks to the kindness of the FoG family all over the world, the home has now been uplifted in various ways. They receive support by way of additional caregivers, the sponsorship of meals, medicine, utilities and much more.
Most recently, the kind donations made by the Tokyo Cement Group has gone a long way towards upgrading the facilities and uplifting the comfort and standard of life of the residents. Tokyo Cement Group magnanimously donated 30 beds along with 30 mattresses, 20 pillows, 20 pillow cases, 30 bed sheets and 2 towel racks to this home that cares for 83 special needs residents between the ages of 4 and 92. All the beds were delivered and assembled in the newly painted rooms, brightening their entire living environment.
Despite a great improvement, the home needs continuous support in order to truly meet the needs of their residents and the Foundation of Goodness will continue to provide all support possible with the help of our wonderful donors and supporters.
