Anjali Aham, an Oblate Institute for Psycho – Social Counselling Centre, established in 2006 has been conducting many educational and other developmental activities for about 250 children in the evenings in an uncompleted rented house. The need for a building to conduct the above stated activities for the children was expressed by many, namely Anjali Aham Director, parents, tutors and children. This need was communicated to Honorable Mr. Merrill J. Fernando, Dilmah Tea Founder, who established the MJF Charitable Foundation to share the benefits of his business with the community.
When he visited Anjali Aham in 2015, he responded to the request of Fr. Provincial that an educational centre for developmental activities for Anjali Aham children could be built if the Oblates provide them a land, close to Anjali Aham. Now, after four years, this project proposal has been launched on August 20, 2019. Mr. Rajan Asirwatham (One of the Trustees of MJF Charitable Foundation), Mr. Kamalanathan (the Head of Operation – MJF Charitable Foundation) and Mr. Mohamed Safrik (the Project Manager – MJF Charitable Foundation) were present to mark this event. Addressing the gathering Fr. Provincial personally thanked Honorable Mr. Merrill J. Fernando and the members of MJF foundation for their unstinted support to Anjali Aham for the last 10 years. Fr. Provincial also gratefully remembered Fr. Soosai Damian, OMI who initiated this immense move forward.
The parents, children and others who were present for this event expressed their happiness over this undertaking.
