“The day hunger disappears, the world will see the greatest spiritual explosion humanity has ever seen.”
“Raise the Woof” the animal lovers project organized by the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa was held successfully on 19th December 2019 around the university premises. We tried to give a better day for around 50 stray animals around the university.
Around University of Moratuwa, there are hungry stray animals, while there is a huge food wastage in canteens. So, we thought that we would be able to use that wastage, for the purpose of mere humanity. First, we arranged special boxes with the name of the project and kept them in canteens to collect leftover food from students. Within few hours, we were able to collect the expected amount of food in our food boxes.
Large green leaves found at university premises were used as plates. After mixing the collected food with cooked fish, we packed them to food boxes and walked far away on the streets searching for dogs. However, when it came to an end after few hours, we were able to feed more than 50 stray animals.
At the end of the project, all of us were very happy since we did a great deed by taking care of some lonely animals who did not seen to be noticed by any one. Not only Leos and prospects, but also a lot of animal lovers got together their hand to make this project a successful one. Finally, the project ended as another social service which was conducted by the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa.
