We are not a Team because we work together. We are team because
we have one mission, one vision and one objective.
To make the world better place to children.
As the main goal of raising one million for these poor little kids Rotaract Club of University of Moratuwa has initiated several projects.
Rotaract Club of University of Moratuwa is more than just a community service club. It is part of a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world. This effort starts at the community level, but it knows no limits in its outreach.

The commendable ventures of Hand in hand volunteers did not go unnoticed, as the “Hand In Hand” project of Rotaract Mora was awarded the Platinum Award for the Most Outstanding Community Service Project under the category of ‘Health Care Facility Improvement’ and the Gold Award for the Most Outstanding Fund Raiser Project in aid of Community Service for the year 2016-2017, at the 27th District Rotaract Assembly. Regardless to say, at the end of the day, we have achieved more than what we could wish for, as pretty smiles adorned each little face and we left leaving behind not a ward of cancer patients but a room full of rosy cheeked, dimpled children with hearts filled with happiness and a hope about tomorrow.
The effort of the volunteers did not go unnoticed, as “Hand in Hand 2017/18” was awarded the Silver Award for the Most Outstanding Fund-Raising Project for the year 2017-2018 at the 28th Rotaract District Training Assembly of Rotaract District 3220. Nevertheless, the biggest award that we will ever receive is the bright smiles on the faces of these little fighters, knowing that we made a difference in their lives to help them in their battle.
Colours -1 and Colours -2, the painting sessions of Hand in Hand 2018/19, were successfully conducted on 14th October 2018 and 4th March 2019 at Apeksha Hospital, Maharagama. The children at the hospital drew to their hearts’ content to showcase their talents on paper while enjoying the company of the Rotaractors, who chatted and laughed with them and gave them gifts. These paintings were printed on Season’s Greeting cards for Christmas and Vesak to raise funds for the project.
In collaboration with “Hand-in-Hand”, “Hope”- the counselling session for the families was held on 6th of April 2018 at Apeksha Hospital, Maharagama which was accompanied by an interactive origami session for youngsters. Dr. Kosala Muthukumarana, medical officer of Narahenpita Cancer Early Detention Centre was welcomed to lead the advising session for the family members of the victimized.
Christmas was a special day for the children at Apeksha Hospital, Maharagama as “Sparkle”, a subproject of “Hand in and”, was held on 25th December 2018. This Christmas party, consisting of a magic show, musical items and a visit by Santa and his friends bringing gifts, brought a smile to every child’s face. The Rotaractors, along with the foreign guests from the International Service project of Rotaract Mora, “Ceylon Safari 2018”, made sure that these children had a Christmas to remember.
