Healing through art and fun

The children of the Sunshine Day Care Centre and the Grace Education Children's Home in Sambalthivu, Trincomalee were treated to a three-day fun-filled art camp organized by the Sunshine Charity, which works with children affected by the tsunami, conflict and poverty.

The innovatively designed workshop helped the children to express their emotions and re-kindle their love for the sea through their drawings and paintings of underwater life, on the day care centre wall. The art mural will be printed as greeting cards to raise funds for the operational costs of the day care centre as well as to raise further awareness on the needs of all marginalized Sri Lankan children.

The workshop was funded by the Force of Nature Aid Foundation of Malaysia and facilitated by Timothy Senaviratne.
