Elderly Home - Piliyandala
Elderly centers are a refuge for numerous elderly people who are without any other place to go. They are free to watch television and listen to the radio while also being able to practice their religion. There are some who are without families and others who are immobile. Some of the elderly folk are having issues with mental and physical health and so we are looking for patient volunteers to assist with this disadvantaged group. Our volunteers who will not only care for our patients physically, but must also strive to increase the happiness of each of our patients. They are in need of care and affection and you will make a difference in their lives if you volunteer with this group. The center is situated in Piliyandala in the Kesbewa Divisional Secretariat area which is around 15 km away from Colombo. We are managed by a Board of Directors.
