We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give.

Project Mission Compassion was initiated with regards to Christmas 2021 with the intention of celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. This great cause was carried out under the Community Services Avenue of RACUOCFMF and was focused on giving out some Christmas gifts to children in need, in order to make their day a much better one. The main intention of the project was to work together to make an innocent Christmas wish come true.

The project commenced around the 2nd of December, 2021 and the first main task was to select the most appropriate location for everyone to carry out the project. After many discussions, the committee decided to go ahead with the Ja-Ela Pamunugama Girls’ Development Centre. This is an orphanage with around 40 girls in the age group of 8-19. After the place was confirmed the ‘Stay Tuned’ post was posted on all social media platforms on the 11th of December.

After contacting the centre a list of items that were required by the children was received which included dolls, hair bands, chocolates, bata slippers, perfumes and badminton rackets. The first donation post was shared on the 17th of December which included this list of items along with the names of the children who requested them. The donation details were included in the post so that the donors can directly donate their proceedings. This was followed by a general donation post on the 20th of December with the donation details.

It was great to see the enthusiasm of the club members as well as outsiders to donate and contribute, in order for the committee to reach the target amount. The final donation post was posted on the 22nd of December which included the remaining items in need. With the immense support of everyone, we were able to collect an amount of Rs. 22,000 which was then used in buying these gifts.

The gifts were bought by the committee members and the wrapping of the gifts were done on the 24th of December. A small handwritten note was included in all the gifts with a message and a Christmas wish for the children. Finally, the gifts were handed out to the children at the Ja-Ela Pamunugama Girls’ development centre on the 26th of December by the committee members along with President Rtr. Arshad Ismail and Secretary Rtr. Oshadi.

Just like that Project Mission Compassion was successfully brought to an end. The success of this project was measured by nothing else other than the smiles of the children after they received their Christmas gifts. Nothing is as meaningful as gifting a little child something useful for Christmas.

Christmas is truly Christmas when we celebrate giving the light of love to those who need it the most which was exactly done under this great cause. Finally, a huge thank you goes out to everyone who contributed in whichever way possible to make this project a success. Every small effort goes a long way. If not for all your efforts this would not have been possible and we would not have been able to see the innocent smiles on the faces of these children.
