Gifts that keep on giving

Give something really unique this Christmas to show you care

Your donations to ECSAT allow us to support disabled people in doing simple things we may take for granted. Installing a ramp at home, adapting a wheelchair, or paying for someone to use a tuk tuk to come to our centre are all vital services we provide to help people get out and about and join in with community life. Your donation will continue to transform lives long after the festivities are over.

  • We are liaising with government officers in Matara to set up a sister Community Centre. In addition another rural community has requested ECSAT’s services when resources are available.
     
  • The Colombo Rotary Club has pledged to support our Outreach Project. This gives equipment and support to disabled people and their families. Without this project, many people would be not be able to leave their homes.
     
  • A trustee sponsored a week’s training in India for Roshan, our Programme Manager. He has returned with ideas for new management strategies and organisational procedures plus networking contacts for fundraising.  Many thanks to the sponsor who will see the results of his generosity with improved management structures at ECSAT.
