Welcome Address by Nadija Tambiah, Head of CSR

John Keells Foundation succeeded in attaining the projects planned for year 2013/2014 in the best possible manner and we could not have done this without you – the volunteers. It is heartwarming to witness a 60% increase in volunteerism at JKF with 554 volunteers involved in 858 different engagements during the year. I take this opportunity to thank all the supervisors for releasing these individuals with minimum restraint and enabling them to contribute to their fullest.

Mr. Susantha Ratnayake, Chairman, JKH

“Well done to all those who volunteered during the past Financial Year! We are very proud of you! While appreciating the fact that there has been an increase in volunteerism, I further request you to encourage  your colleagues so that each of you persuades at least one or two more to pledge their support for these worthy causes.”
