“The Erabadu flowers bloom
Cuckoo sings cu-ckoo
Firecrackers go boom
Sinhala and Tamil New Year knock our doors
Passing the message
Shall we celebrate New Year
With the people who missed their childhood?”
Awurudu waram is another amazing project organized by Leo Club of University of Moratuwa District 306A2 twinned with Leo Club of St. Michel’s Institution of Leo District 308B2 to celebrate Sinhala and Tamil New Year with the children who missed their parental love, affection and care in their childhood. It was held on 22nd of April at Sarvodaya Suwasetha children’s home, Baddegama, Sri Lanka and Precious Gift Orphanage Society,Perak.
Leos who participated with this event in both countries did their maximum to entertain the children and bring laughter to their faded faces. A meal filled with awurudu sweets was prepared at the children home, Baddegama and they able to join with different awurudu games and events. Finally we were able to successfully conclude both of the projects while passing the true message of Sinhala and Tamil New Year.
