Why Share and Care
Our goal is to alleviate poverty through charitable projects, help on education for under privileged and disabled children, supporting their parents to stand on their feet. Share and care does not discriminate on ethnicity, religion or gender. We have no borders . We will help where we can.
The immediate response
Share and care initially created to assist Tsunami victims of Sri Lanka.
For millions of people in Southern Asia, life changed forever on the day of the tsunami.
The number of displaced families in Sri Lanka is estimated to be nearly half a million. They have lost homes, belongings and livelihoods as well as essential parts of the islands infrastructure, including schools.
Inevitably, the media spotlight has shifted, but the coastal communities that experienced the most devastation will take many years to recover.
We felt a special responsibility. Many of us lost family members, friends and colleagues in Sri Lanka.
We did what we could to provide immediate assistance. As well as contributing financially to the international relief agencies, we sent clothing and medical supplies directly to the worst affected areas.
Our short and longer term objectives
Children remain the most vulnerable group. They account for a third of the more than 30,000 fatalities. Many hundreds more have lost one or both of their parents and are subject to immense psychological trauma.
We have a number of short-term and long-term objectives. Most of them are focused on children and we are liaising directly with established educators in Sri Lanka.
