Music never blind

“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”


The strength of a community depends on how willing its members are to contribute towards the upliftment of the lives of one another. Each human being has unique talents and capabilities that can help himself as well as others. It is the duty of humanity to use those capabilities to extend a supporting hand to a person in need.

Taking a little step towards letting visually impaired people to feel nature with some music and vocally described environment, Leo club of University of Moratuwa executed the project 'Music never blind'  with the objective of helping the people who are visually impaired and blind.

This project was held on 26th May 2020 from 8.00 a.m to 2.00 p.m at   Vocational Training Center for the Visually Handicapped, Karapitiya. The mental health of blind people can improve by some therapies. So we gave them a better medication CD which consisted of 11 audio tracks to make a positive sight and enlighten the darkness of delicate souls.

Also, we were able to provide the necessary clothes for them. We were informed that they are having a lack of clothes to wear. That was because there were no donations as a result of corona pandemic these days.
After all, we felt very glad because we were able to give sight for their lives through that successful, valuable project, Music never blind.

Craftyland

    
Many people have accustomed to spending most of their time outside of the home because of their busy schedules. When the COVID-19 curfew period was keeping everyone locked up into their homes, it was not a pleasant experience for them. Therefore, UoM Leos thought to do something to eliminate people’s laziness through their creativity itself.
Thereby, the project “Craftyland” was organized to collect craft-making videos. It was conducted intending to make a craft and post a video of how to do it for the viewers to give a try. This enjoyable project was successfully ended with a nice collection of craft-making videos with the contribution of Leos, prospects, and some outsiders as well. Besides, it could make this isolated period fruitful.
