GlobalGiving Report April 2022
GlobalGiving has been a valuable partner for many years. We especially appreciate that during the numbingly hard days of the pandemic E.A.S.E. Foundation was able to survive thanks to your sustained support.
Last December we gave bags filled with essential goods to our 24 families. In addition to Rice, Dhal and curry spices we made sure to include drawing books and crayons as well as sweet treats for the kids. My mom and I made cupcakes that were much appreciated.
This year 2022 so far has been excellent for E.A.S.E. Foundation. Island wide schools remain open so we are open too. We are so glad that at last we have a house big enough to accommodate most of our needs. My cousin lent us his house while he lives abroad for a few years. Our student’s mothers can make themselves a cup of tea, sit down at a table and enjoy a quiet moment or a chat with other mothers. All our mothers are so appreciative of this break from their busy days. Especially these days when the situation in the country is so difficult with shortages of essentials and power cuts.
For two years we had no celebrations. Joy is such a vital part of the human experience, sadly scarce in the lives of people with disabilities. At E.A.S.E. we try to ensure that our students and their families have a chance to have fun. So on April 2, World Autism Day we had a small party. A fancy dress competition, games, music, dancing and a table full of good party food ensured a fun morning. Both kids and parents enjoyed the events planned for them Being a family friendly organization we also gave bags of essential goods. Fact is Sri Lanka is going through economically hard times. We do what we can to help – we wish we could do more.
Many thanks to GlobalGiving for its fundraising efforts on our behalf. Your efforts help us reach out to the most marginalized vulnerable people in society.
