Abode donates showers and brassware to The Foundation of Goodness
The Foundation of Goodness is a charity set up 15 years ago after the devastating Tsunami to provide essential services to the lives of rural communities in Sri Lanka. Its mission is to empower the less privileged rural communities so that they may have equal opportunities to excel in life and one of its key objectives is to ensure that every family has access to appropriate services including sanitation, electricity and clean water.
Abode annually sponsors local young, amateur football and rugby teams and this year when the rugby team from Ashville College visited Sri Lanka it decided to help out the Foundation of Goodness charity by asking Abode to donate a quantity of bathroom taps and showers to refurbish orphanages and other centres across Sri Lanka.
Our photograph shows the captain of the Ashville College team presenting a pallet of Abode bathroom showers and brassware which was air-freighted to Sri Lanka to arrive on time for when the students arrived. On receiving the donation, Anura De Silva of the Foundation commented: "Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for making this kind donation. We are delighted to accept these items and as they are of the highest quality, we will use them to their best advantage at our centres and elsewhere."
Helen Clark, Marketing Manager of Abode says: "We applaud the Foundation of Goodness for providing facilities and an environment that engenders learning opportunities for disadvantaged rural children and youth. We, too, were pleased to be able to help improve the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves."
