Donate to Children in Shelters through ARC’s Ramazan Collection 2017


Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC) invites the public to take part in its annual Ramazan Collection for Children’s Shelters, to donate gifts for children in shelters. The gifts will be presented before the Holy month of Ramazan, to over 170 boys and girls of ages ranging from 0-18 living in Kudakudhinge Hiya, Amaan Hiya (Villimale) and Fiyavathi (Hulhumale’).

This year’s Ramazan Collection is held with the generous support of the management, staff and students of Centre for Higher Secondary Education (CHSE). The collection period will be from 1st to 7th May 2017 and CHSE will be open for collections from 15:00 to 17:00 every day. Please ensure that all donations are in excellent condition (new or gently used items). For further details, please contact 7799544 during these hours.
