A new building was donated for the ‘Yaya 18’ United Welfare Society in Rajanganaya in March 2021.The building was another private donation to the community by chairman of ‘Aura Lanka’ – Dr. Chandika Viranjith Thambugala.
A small function was held when the building was handed over to the Welfare Society on March 21, 2021.All office bearers and members of the Welfare Society as well as that of the ‘Yaya 18 Thirasara Haritha Prajamoola Sanwidanaya’ were present at the event.
Dr. Thambugala’s generosity to the area was much lauded by President of the Welfare Society – Mr. Jayadasa.Addressing the gathering, he said : “Many people in the present society think only of their own progress and do not care about the welfare of others. Some people are only concerned about filling their own pockets. So, I would like to say that it is our good fortune and blessing that a person such as Dr. Thambugala, who considers the suffering of innocent people as his own, is born to our village. I am not saying this merely because he built us this beautiful building at the cost of Rs. 3.7 million… From the day he returned to this area, the majority of residents had enjoyed various economic benefits.”
Speaking further on Dr. Thambugala’s generosity and legacy as a philanthropist, Mr. Jayadasa said that he had never before seen such a businessman who had considered others’ sufferings as his own.
