“The Erabadu flowers bloom,
Cuckoo sings cu-ckoo,
Firecrackers go boom,
Sinhala and Tamil New Year knock our doors..
Passing the message,
Shall we celebrate New Year,
With the people who missed their childhood?”
Awurudu waram is another amazing project organized by the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa District 306A2 twinned with Leo Club of St. Michel’s Institution of Leo District 308B2 to celebrate Sinhala and Tamil New Year with the children who missed their parental love, affection and care in their childhood. It was held on 22nd of April at Sarvodaya Suwasetha children’s home, Baddegama, Sri Lanka and Precious Gift Orphanage Society, Perak simultaneously.
Leos who participated to this event in both countries did their maximum to entertain the children and bring laughter to their faded faces. A meal filled with awurudu sweets was prepared at the children’s home, Baddegama and they were able to join with different awurudu games and events. Finally we successfully conclude both of the projects while passing the true message of Sinhala and Tamil New Year.
