Donated an Electric Scooter to Harshani Deepika Wijesinghe, Mahauswewa

The DOT Foundation has donated an Electric Scooter for the disabled to Harshani Deepika Wijesinghe, a student of Nawagaththegama Rathnapala Vidyalaya, Mahauswewa.

Harshani is from a less privileged family in a village at Navagaththegama, Anuradhapura and her father is a carpenter. Her father was disabled due to an industrial accident. Harshani has inborn disabled legs and hands. She can never walk alone. Her father has to hold her to go to the school. She required a self-operated electric scooter to be independent. Her family was unable to afford it.

Based on a request from Help Hand Sri Lanka organisation, The DOT Charitable Foundation decided to help Harshani. The cost of the scooter is LKR 149,000.00 and supplied by The Solid Scooters, Negombo.

On 21st April 2018 Harshani and her family came all the way from Anurudhapura to Negombo, to collect the scooter. Harshani will come to the school in her new electric scooter in the next school term. It will help her to further advance her education, and fulfil her dream of university entrance.

On behalf of The DOT Charitable Foundation, Ruvini Saparamadhu handed over the scooter to Harshani today. We have to say big thank you to Ruvini since whole day she was in the shop and make sure it was adjusted and tested to Harshani’s requirements. Also thank you to Srimal Jayathilaka and Sumedha Malthota of Help Hand Sri Lanka for coordinating this donation.
