First Awareness Program
The First Awareness Program held in Kandy City Centre on the 14th & 15th of August 2016.
Outreach Camps Service
The main reason to start the outreach camp programs were to reach out to people who are unable to come to CFH for help. The first step was to analyze the geographical spread of the outpatients. We therefore decided to conduct outreach camps out of Kandy. It was not an easy task to explain our approach and convince the people about the process of outreach camps. Our first camp was in Ampara in the year 1999 which was a resounding success. This encouraged us to continue with outreach camps and we have completed a number of them to date.

Her main intention on her Birthday party was to open up a Permanent Fund at Center For Handicapped. Where she informed the invitees if they choose to give a gift that it should be a donation for Centre For Handicapped. We opened up a Preferment Fund in name of 'Ayesha Imbuldeniya Wijeyeratne Family & Friends Permanent Fund'.
