Ceylon Today E-paper (Saturday, 05 Oct 2013)

Love! Care! Inspire!

Looking back into why the team chose this theme for the year, they remember how a few of their members were inspired by Dr. Sinniah’s speech, where he mentioned that the greatest help one could do for differently abled children is to spread awareness about them to the society, and help break the barriers the society has put on these children. Dr. Sinniah Thevananthan, Founder of the ‘Osilmo Special Education and Research Centre for Autistic Children’ was selected as the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ for his outstanding contributions in the arena of active volunteerism. Dr. Sinniah is tirelessly working towards ensuring the same rights, freedom and opportunities for children with autism that other children enjoy.
