The most beautiful thing in this world is to see your parents smiling and knowing that you are the reason behind those generous smiles. But in today’s world there are so many parents who cry alone in elders’ homes because of their children. These parents have shed their blood and sweat to raise their children into perfect personalities in the society having so many hopes and dreams in their minds. But their hopes have broken into pieces and now they are left alone in the world.

Moratumulla Methodist Elders’ Home is one such place which is the shelter for few mothers who are left alone in this world. Every year, we UoM Leos make a small effort to bring some light to their gloomy lives. This time we visited them on 7 th of April 2016. Their happy smiling faces depicted that they were waiting for our visitation. For the whole evening they sang with us, danced with us and shared their life time stories with us. And also we had tea and snacks with them. We felt like we were their saviors, who pulled them up from their gloomy lonely lives. Seeing their smiling, lightened up faces we felt sorry, who on earth can leave such nice mothers alone in this world like this.

Your parents might not be perfect, but they are the most precious gift god has ever given you. Never forget your parents or leave them behind because you are ashamed to have them around you. They are the reason why you are here and who you are today. So love your parents and treat them with care. Don’t leave them at elders’ homes. Because you will only know their values when you see their empty seats.

Leo Ekka Awrudu

There is greenery everywhere, fresh leaves on trees, flowers in bloom,

vegetables and fruits in plenty and the songs of birds in the air. The aroma of

sweetmeat, the sound of raban and the koha's cry, symbolize that the entire country

is ready to celebrate this national festival.According to the Sinhala calendar, Sri

Lankans begin celebrating Aluth Avurudu in Sinhala, in the month of Bak when

the sun moves from the MeenaRashiya to the MeshaRashiya. The name Bak is

derived from the Sanskrit word bhagya meaning fortunate.

Beginning of a new year is the ideal time to refresh the mind of everyone

and to fill up the mind with new expectations. As a family, UoM Leos always get

together to share their happy and sad times with the others. In the month Bak, we

organized a awurudu programme to enhance the bondages of all Leos, prospects,

past Leos and Leos from A2 district. This glamorous occasion was held on 10th of

April in Lagaan area of University of Moratuwa with the participation of about

fifty Leos. As customary we arranged awurudu meals for all Leos giving priority

for the rituals. While ‘avurudu’ customs help to maintain age old traditions and

strengthen bonds, they also play a significant role in promoting community

harmony.Whole the day was filled with happy and joy with the different games

such as “Kottapora”, “Kanamuttibideema”,”Baniskama”, “Aliyataasathabima”,

Lime and spoon, passing eggs and etc.  These games brought fun and joy to our

lives and at the same time, taught us a valuable lesson about team spirit. That day

helped us to begin the New Year with smiles on our faces.

A new year is like a blank book. The pen is in your hands. It’s your chance

to write a beautiful story for yourself.


Blood Donation 2016

If you donate money

But if you donate blood

You give life

As humans, we all love for long life. But we hear many tragic stories in our day

today life. But many deaths can be avoided if they receive correct blood type in

those incidents. So blood donation is such a worthy case which can save millions

of people’s life. Blood donation is a voluntary procedure. If you agree to have

blood drawn, then it can be given to someone who needs a blood transfusion.

Millions of people need blood transfusions each year. Some may need blood

during surgery. Others depend on it after an accident or because they have a

disease that requires blood components. Blood donation makes all of this possible.

This valuable service was done by UoM Leos on 27 th of April at Old gym of

University of Moratuwa. Large number of students got together their hand to make

this event a successful one. Many students who have the sensitivity towards other

human beings came to donate their blood. Humanity was well embossed in that

project because without a good heart they would never tend to do this generous


If you are a blood donor, you are a hero to someone, somewhere, who received

your gracious gift of life. If you give blood you give another birthday, another

anniversary, another day at the beach, another night under the stars, another talk

with a friend, another laugh, another hug and another chance. Be a hero and save a
