‘Avurudu’, the Sinhala and Hindu New Year that falls in mid April of every year, is the most joyous season for all of Sri Lanka. However, 2020 and the Coronavirus lockdown brought grim feelings to many daily-wage earning families during this year’s Avurudu season as income streams were cut short and financial struggle took its toll. Texus, in partnership with the Sri Lanka Police, Ride for Ceylon and Coca-Cola Sri Lanka, in the hope of bringing a whiff of relief to 1500 of such families in and around Colombo, distributed bags filled with essentials, sweets and beverages during Avurudu. While keeping the true spirit of the festival alive, we enjoyed the true joy of sharing as we managed to put a smile on many faces. Read more.
Caring for the Carers
The Sri Lanka Police, as always, stood in guard during the lockdown to ensure public safety, leaving their own health and safety on the line. In recognition of these efforts, we at Texus, along with Ride for Ceylon, took the initiative to donate beverages during these trying times to quench the thirst of Police men and women who are occupying checkpoints across the country.
A Long Road Ahead
Our partnership with Ride for Ceylon is destined to take a long road into the future. The collective efforts to have a positive impact on the lives of our fellow Sri Lankans are what binds us in this partnership. With the 5th annual Tour of Jaffna planned to be held between 3 – 6 March 2021, we pledge our support as the tour aims to fund the restoration of the historic Green Memorial Hospital, Manipay.
