Amuzed is a project by IMCD to support and enrich the lives of differently abled people, children in children’s homes and elders in elder’s homes across Sri Lanka. It focuses on changing the perspective of society regarding these beautiful human beings by creating awareness about their need for physical and emotional attention, as well as understanding that they have the same rights and responsibilities. Enriching their lives by making them happy and confident about their abilities and building their trust and understanding of society is a vital factor to help them embrace their capabilities.
With this project we predominantly focus on children’s homes, elder’s homes, homes for special kids and cancer, thalassemia patients around the country. In the year 2013 we have successfully completed three phases of Amuzed which benefited two communities in Kegalle and Kaluthara and Bothale. And in the year 2014 did two phases at Maharagama Boys Home to Celebrate Vesak and Sinhala New Year. These phases greatly helped to achieve our main aspiration, which is to make them confident with the idea that they are a part of us and that society really cares.
On 22nd October 2016, Amuzed organized an event in Kottawa Charles and Roslyn Fernando Trust elder’s home. Our Volunteers spent the day with elders and were able to give some sunshine to their lonely lives.
This year, Amuzed celebrated Aurudu with a bunch of innocent eyes an cheerful smiles, at the Noguchi Child Development Centre, Papiliyana. From the morning of 30th April 2016, Amuzed team spent the day with the children, and returned in the evening with beautiful memories and lots of love from children.
During the 2015 Christmas season, Amuzed became the family to a bunch of innocent kids from Bakthiwedatha Child Care Centre, who keep wishing for a family, love and care, everyday in life. So on 27th December 2015 we celebrated Christmas with love, care and happiness with those who lack them in life.
It is indeed highly commendable how Needy Readers have understood the value of reading and donate books to students from schools like this.
IMCD has a vision to help underpriviledged communities all around the country. I’m really happy where IMCD is today, impacting so many people and communities. I wish you good luck for all future work and plans.
