For the children of Sri Dharmashoka Daham School in Colombo, Sri Lanka, that Sunday morning of January 7, 2018, was a blessing from heaven. Angels marched into their learning abode, bequeath them with nutritional meals followed by a late Christmas Gift Giving distribution, the Global Santa program brought by We Care for Humanity (WCH) in collaboration with Thilanka Hotel & Resorts and Grand Lanka Paradise Tours.
Among the key donors are none other than Sri Lanka’s pride, Former Consul General to Los Angeles, now Director of Airport and Aviation – Mr. Jeff Goonewardena with the help of Vice Chairman Airport Aviation – Mr. Ranjith Silva, President of Japan Expo, Sri Lanka- Mr. & Mrs. Ruwan Perera, Former Member of Parliament – Mr. Amal Senandilankara, Coordinator – Mr. D.K.D. Dissayake and the only non-Sri Lankan, Founder & President of WCH, H.H. Princess Maria Amor of the Royal House of Baloi, Philippines.
The partnership of Jeff and Maria are very strong on Education and this is the second time they have alleviated the needs for school bags and supplies in some of the depressed areas of the nation. Two years ago, the tandem has distributed more than 5000 meals, bags, and school supplies in at least 10 cities of Sri Lank. But their humanitarian goals are beyond just relief programs, Mr. Goonewardena promises to deliver sustainable programs and help build educational and health facilities as well in the near future.
Rev. Thenagama Dhammaloka Thero, Chief Incumbent of Sri Saddharmaramaya and Principal of Sri Dharmashoka Daham school said, “We can’t thank Mr. Jeff and his team enough for this wonderful blessing they are donating to our school and students. This noble act will touch many lives, create bright futures and build legacies.”
Princess Maria Amor, also known as the Traveling Princess made a statement: “I will never get tired of coming to Sri Lanka and do humanitarian projects with Jeff because I believe in what he is doing. I admire his heart and his compassion to help his countrymen is unparalleled. He is the kind of person who walks his talks”. She continues, “my job as the Chairman of the Global Officials of Dignity (G.O.D.) Awards is to find the Greatest Humanitarians in the World and Jeff is definitely one of them!”, proudly said by the princess.
Jeff was honored as Sri Lanka’s Humanitarian Ambassador at the 3rd G.O.D. Awards at the United Nations and in spite of all his accolades, he keeps his humility at all times. “I am thankful to Princess Maria who travels the globe to mobilize people like me to do good things for their community. It is my great pleasure to work with We Care for Humanity and the Princess as we have the same mission to help the needy. In the same magnitude, I would like to thank Mr. Ranjith Silva for guiding me about this project and to Mr. & Mrs. Ruwan Perera who offered their support and donated in a major way. To my team, Amal, D.K.D., the media people, you all contributed to the success of this project, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
The humanitarian tandem Jeff and Maria will be back again in April 2018, something the Sri Lankans should look forward to.
