At the Annual General Meeting of Skal International Colombo held recently, a member, Dougie Douglas, General Manager Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Nepal made a fervent appeal on behalf of the Women in Need (WIN) non-governmental organization. He said that his organization, Etihad Airlines, was involved in a CSR project with WIN and requested the assistance of SKAL Colombo to assist him to enhance the support to WIN.
The SKAL members rallied round his appeal and funds were raised to donate the necessary quantity of paint needed to paint one of the homes maintained by WIN to house abused women. A local paint company, Multilac Paints too, chipped in with a donation of paint to WIN.
The donation was handed over by the Immediate Past President of Skal International Colombo, Dushy Jayaweera to Dilrukshi, the Legal and Project Manager of WIN in the presence of the organizer of the project, Sk. Douggie Douglas on International Women’s Day (08th March).
