Residential care is provided at Leela Jayasekera Memorial Transit Home in Lunawa, Moratuwa for 20 children between the ages of 03 to 05. They are either referred here by the Department of Probation and Child Care or transferred from the Suwasetha Nutrition Care Center. This Home provides transit care for these children until they are handed over to their guardians or transferred to other Homes.
While pre-school education is given to these children in the mornings, they are engaged in various indoor and outdoor activities during the afternoons for their relaxation. They take part in religious activities and get the opportunity to go on short recreational trips with the help obtained from kind donors. The children get to participate in events like the annual World Children’s Day celebrations organised by the Department of Probation & Child Care as well as New year and Christmas Programmes organised by different organisations.
Among the innocence, talent is plenty. Although the faces change as they grow up and move out of this transit home, every year these children win many awards and prizes in singing, dancing and other competitions they take part in.
At present, there are no long term donors funding towards the maintenance of the Transit Home. Below information is for anyone who wishes to contribute towards the home.
