Sri Lankan community leaders in France have formed a new association
called Suriya Udawa to mobilize funds for child development projects in

The new association will launch its first project later this year to
help rebuilding of school buildings in Vavuniya, Mannar, Kilinochchi and
Suriya Udawa will implement several projects on child rehabilitation,
education, child health and social upliftment of children within the
next three years.
Stating this, President of Suriya Udawa, Saman Mannapperuma said that
several leading Sri Lankans abroad including Collette Senanayake of
United States and Edward Perera of Germany would raise funds from
individual philanthropists and organizations in Europe and United States
