Kolomthotin Yalpanamata was a journey of fraternity that we carried the warmth of harmony and happiness from heart to heart, all the way long from Colombo to Jaffna. This time, UOM Leos celebrated the wonder of the prosperous Pongal festival, while continuing their service projects to accomplish the responsibility towards the society, as a two day project series on 20th and 21st January.

On the first day, we were truly blessed with the prosperous Pongal celebration at Rattaijapulam vairavar kovil, Sandilipay. The members of the Aranery Hindu society joined with us to celebrate this wonderful event according to their cultural traditions.  Kolam art is a symbol of the auspiciousness in the Hindu culture. We organized a Kolam competition at Channagum kovil and it was a huge success.

 

While feeling the cheer and good luck of Pongal, UOM Leos didn’t forget to celebrate it in a purposive manner. Second day we organized a beach cleaning project to clean the Casuarina beach, Jaffna. Since we know that, every removal of trash reveals something beautiful, we put our full effort to clean that area.

Next half of the day, we spent at Valvakam blind school joining hands with Leo Club of Manipay Parish, continuing project Vision which was carried out to help the children who haven’t taken their blindness as an excuse. We donated some stationary items and entertained them by singing songs.

Finally, we were able to successfully complete this project series, Kolomthotin Yalpanamata while proving the unconfined service of UoM Leos.
