Project Review

Many disable children in Sri Lanka do not get enough love and care because of lack of government and family support. . RCDP Sri Lanka presently collaborates with a physically and mentally disabled children home aiming to offer education, training, and support for poor disabled children. The project has also housed and cared for other mentally and psychologically diseased people. RCDP Sri Lanka Volunteer program invites volunteers to work in this project and share their skills, love, and passion for these neglected children. Your love, compassion and friendly behavior to the disabled persons are the effective means for improving their situation.
