About

First a Basic Introduction.

Floor Plan

A place to live in and care needed has become a distant dream for many elders in the Sri Lankan society. Another serious issue unseen is the lack of a place for patients with serious illnesses visiting Colombo to spend a short period during their treatments. The chief incumbent ofKethumathie Viharaya, Madiwela, Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte,Prof. Venerable Naimbala Dhammadassi Thero, has initiated a project to care for elders and providea transit home for patients and an accompanying family member to lodge for a short period during treatments. A land in Horana area close to Colombo is already obtained to conduct these activities. It is situated away from the busy area of the city in a quiet and peaceful environment. Through the activities of the ‘Senehasa’Social Welfare and Social Care Project it is expected to address two crucial issues faced by the most vulnerable groups in the society. The project within its scope will support any citizen of Sri Lanka irrespective of their ethnicity, castor religion.
