Our partnership with Samutthāna began in 2012 with the birth of our Mental Health Placement. Since then our special relationship has gone from strength to strength, with 2014/2015 being a particularly exciting year for us.
In addition to the Meditation and Creative Therapy workshops Samutthāna provides for our volunteers, in August we had the opportunity to visit the Foundation of Goodness with Samutthāna counselor Duminda Wanigasekera. Here volunteers got to see first-hand some of the great strides being made in mental health treatment.
Visiting one of the places where the2004 tsunami did the most damage, both physically to the island and emotionally to the local community, was a real eye opener for volunteers, and the overwhelming feedback was that the value of the Foundation of Goodness’s services can’t be overstated.
