Engineers Charity Fund (ECF) made a donation of $2500 (Approx. Rs.379,200) to Hari Illam Orphanage from Batticaloa for providing additional coaching classes in Maths, Science & English for students from Grades 6 to 11.

Due to COVID19 pandemic the orphanage is facing limited financial support from their regular donors. We are glad that ECF was able to make this donation to Hari Illam at this difficult time with the kind support of our donors.

There are about 56 children at this orphanage and 13 of them are continuing their tertiary education at various Universities (including two students at Faculty of Engineering). ECF is supporting the children at Hari Illam for the last many years.

We are glad to note that we have received overwhelming support for this project. Some of the students performed well and may get the opportunity to follow the tertiary education.

The committee thank and pass on our gratitude to all the donors for their generous & kind hearted contributions. We are sure this donation will help the orphanage to continue the additional coaching classes to the children to perform well in their exams.

We wish to thank Kugathas (E80) (ACT) for coordinating this initiative.
