AKURATA ELIYAK  

Akurata Eliyak was a project organized by UoM Leos, joining hands with the Lions club of Dehiwala North, to lighten up the life of the school children who try to win their life with the name of education. It was held on 27th of December at the Batuwangala Central College, Neluwa which was a school affected from the flood.

අපිටත් නත්තල් 

  
සීතල උදුවප් මාසයේ මාපිය උණුහුමට ගුලිවෙමින්, නත්තල් අසිරිය විඳ දරා ගන්නට දහසක් බලාපොරොත්තු හදවතේ ඇති වුවත්, එය අත්විඳීමට තරම් වාසනාව නොලද්දාවූ බොහෝමයක් දරුවන් අප අතරම සිටී. තවත් එවැනි දරු කැලකට අස්වැසිල්ලක් වෙමින්, උදාවූ නත්තල් අසිරිය ඔවුන් සමග සෙනෙහසින් බෙදා ගැනීමට, මොරටුව විශ්වවිද්‍යාලයේ ලියෝ සමාජයේ අපි තීරණය කළෙමු.

එම පැතුම පෙරදැරි කරගෙන, දෙව් සෙනෙහස ලොව පැතිරෙන අසිරිමත් නත්තල් උදාවට හෝරා කිහිපයක්පමණක් තිබියදී, උඳුවප් මස 24 දින සවස්‌ යාමයේදී, අපි ගාල්ල, බටගන්විල "සුවසෙත" ළමා මධස්ථානයට පියමන් කළෙමු. සිඟිති මුව සිනහවෙන් සරසන්නට නත්තල්  තෑගි පිරිවරාගෙන එහි ගොඩවූ අපි, ඔවුන් සමගින් හෝරා කිහිපයක්ම විනෝදාස්වාදයෙන් යුතුව ගත කළෙමු.





නත්තලේ සැබෑ අරුත ඔවුනට හරිහැටි අවබෝධ වූවාදැයි නොදැනුනමුදු, ඔවුන්ගේ සිඟිති ලෝකය සතුටින් පුරවන්නට අප වරක් හෝ හේතු වූවා යන සිතුවිල්ල සමගින්, අකමැත්තෙන් වුවද ඔවුනට සමු දෙමින් අපි නික්ම ආවෙමු.





SHRAMADANA CAMPAIGN  





Living in a clean and a tidy environment helps to make the minds clear. In a deeper            understanding, cleaning a temple means the “Outer, Inner and Secret” cleaning. Bearing this hope in our minds, we, the UoM Leos organized a cleaning program at Sri Pushparama Viharaya, Matara on 3rd of December 2017. We cleaned the temple premises on that day.


Instead of usual clutter and confusion, we, concluded the work for the day, with the feeling of a clarity in our own minds, as we felt attuned to the neatness and beauty of the environment.  



 Heart Beat                                                                                                                                                

     We, the UoM Leos always look forward to console the people who need the assistance most. With the intention of standing on behalf of them, the second and the third phase of the service project series Heart Beat was launched on 4th and 5th of November at Kakirawa and on 18th and 19th of November at Kallagama.

“Drug use prevention is the best treatment and it COST LESS in LIVES and DOLLARS”
-Frank Kelly-


  Addiction to drugs can erase happiness and peace from a life. But unfortunately, drug addiction is spreading like a disease among the school children today. An effort to suppress this tragedy is being launched as a drug prevention program, done aiming the schools island wide, under the organizing of the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa together with the National Dangerous Drug Control Board. 

The inaugural ceremony of this program was successfully conducted, simultaneously, with the Service Project ‘Hadagesma’- Kellagama on 18th of November at Kallagama Navodya Vidyalaya.



This program will continue under different phases in the future too going with the intention of saving the younger generation from the illusion they are falling in. It’s a responsibility of ours, to save the future of our country.


Apeksha






Uncertainty is a common phenomenon of the world. But should we discourage ourselves due to this? We, the Leos of university of Moratuwa taught that anything beyond our control is not something to suffer, on 11th of November 2017 by holding a project day out with kids in cancer hospital.





 
This project was held on above mentioned day from 9 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. at play house in kids’ ward of Maharagama cancer hospital. 



Classical music society of University of Moratuwa too contributed equally in this project with Leo club. Some fun activities and a musical program were held for little kids and as finalizing the program we donated some essential medicines for treatments to the hospital.  

 Though we can’t gain what we choose in every moment, it’s nothing wrong in expecting good to happen in our lives, as some times expectations can do miracles. That expectation was performed by UoM Leos as the “Apeksha”.




Sihinayata Piyapath                                                                                            

     
    
        We, the UoM Leos correlate with the development of education sector of children in rural areas, with the intention of enhancing their mathematical and leadership skills. All what we desire is to show them how to dream big and give wings to those big dreams, from the name of education.



This project series “Sihinayata Piyapath” was conducted continuously to encourage students who are going to sit for the G.C.E. O/L examination this year.

      

The successful 8th phase of the project series was conducted on 3rd November at Thulhiriya Dharmasiri Senanayaka school, Kegalle. There, we discussed the mathematical problems targeting the G.C.E. Ordinary Level exam paper and taught them some easy ways to answer the questions while paying attention to each student as much as possible. This was carried out successfully throughout the day and we hope that our effort was a huge strength to them.



Damithu Saviya                                                                             

                        As responsible citizens, developing and repairing religious places is one of our major responsibilities. Since, they are the places where people can develop their spiritual life, according to the Buddhism, It is a great merit.



         Damithu saviya is another community development project organized by UOM Leos taking hands with Leo club of Dehiwala North.   It was held on 2nd November at Sudharmarama Viharaya, Hapugala. Pipeline system and the electricity system of the newly constructed lavatory of the temple was repaired with the help of Leos and prospects. Finally, we were able to conclude this project as another great effort taken by UOM Leos to develop religious places.


















The drama “Eka sakkuwe”

Service to be done, opportunities to be taken, courage is already there so we have to have collection. For collect in a creative way, we, the UoM LEOs staged a drama as a fund raising project.

‘Eka sakkuwe’ was a popular drama which was a proud production of Mr. Sarath Kothalawala. It was staged on 25th of October 2017 at Old gym of university of Moratuwa, in two shows, 4.30pm and       7.00 pm. So many university students and even Leos too came to watch this drama, and we were able to see queue of hopeful joyful spectators before show times. The well-known actors who were present in the drama performed their best to convey the message of the drama to the audience. And we could conclude it as todays drama which touched the core of the hearts of audience by seen the feedback of the invitees and spectators.
 The great writer Shakespeare has told that life is a stage and we are mere actors on it. So we provided the chance of visualizing the reflection of our selves for two hours by conducting this project. Ultimately this can be nominated as a successful project which satisfied the Leoism once again.

Siyak Sip Sal

We, all the Lions and Leos are bound to serve the community in the best possible way we could. Since the school children are the future of the country, it is one of our responsibility to be a guiding hand in their education.

Taking this in to consideration, the project ‘Siyak Sip Sal’ was organized by the Lions club of Dehiwala North, to encourage students who are going to sit for the G.C.E. O/L examination. We, the UoM Leos became contributors to this project by joining hands with them, together with the Leo club of Centennial Presbyterian Girls College, having the intention of enhancing their mathematical skills.

The project was conducted on 23rd of October at Presbyterian Girls College, Colombo from the morning onwards. As UoM Leos, we gave them hand in hand on mathematics to the students who participated in this seminar through discussing the mathematical problems targeting the O/L exam and taught them some easy ways to answer the questions while paying attention to each student as much as possible. This was carried out successfully throughout the day and we hope that our effort was a huge strength to them.
The Lions club is planning to extend this concept up to 100 schools in Sri Lanka and we, the UoM Leos are looking forward to join hands with them from every possible way we could, in the future too. 


Senehasa


There is a responsibility for everyone to take care about the fulfillment of the special needs and requirements of the elderly citizens. However, the society has paid less attention towards that responsibility. Hence, elderly people live alone, away from there loveable family members.

On 8th of October we, the UOM Leos visited Moratuwa Methodist Elders Home to spend time with them. We cleaned the surrounded area of the Elders Home on that day. Apart from that, we had nice meeting with them. It was a great day to remember as we able to make them happy and make them away from their usual loneliness. 


Singithi sith ru

The world of the preschooler is one of imagination and magic. Normally, children’s creativity will reach its peak before the age of six. During this period, kids tend to explore and learn about everything. Therefore, it is a critical time in the development of kids and parent and adults play a central role in it.

We, the UoM leos, in line with the spirit of children’s day, conducted an art competition “Singithi sith ru”,  for the kids of Sumudu Preschool on the 04th October 2017 from 9.00am onwards. Kids are asked to draw paintings on that day. While they are drawing, we shared their fresh ideas in a friendly manner. We are able to refresh them by giving yoghurt also. Finally, kids were given with a present and wind up the session for the day.


Senehasata Suwasetha

It is true that the best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, but they must be felt from the heart. One such beautiful relationship is the bond in between a mother and her child. Every mother wishes to see her child healthy. But, a mother to give birth to a healthy child, she herself must be healthy at first.
That is why, we, the UoM Leos joint hands with the Lions Club of Matara-Nilwala and organized an awareness program, aiming the mothers in Thissamaharama area, to make them aware about the importance of good nutrition habits during the pregnancy period, and the need of breast feeding for the children during infancy. The program was conducted on 1st of October from the morning till the noon, at the Public Health Officer’s premises in Thissamaharama area. Together with the awareness program done by Dr. W.P. Jayasena, there also was a distribution of packs of dry food items to the pregnant mothers who participated on that day.

The program was concluded as a success and at the same time, as the organizers, we would like to remember everyone who participated on that day including the health officers, Leos, Prospects and especially, the members from the Lions Club of Matara-Nilwala, who helped us to make the session a success. We hope that, the service done by this program was useful to the society, since a healthy mother and a healthy child is the future of a country.
