The Rotary Club of Stockholm International RCSI is pleased to announce the success of their fund-raising evening for the Nutrition For Life NFL project hosted by Sri Lankas Childrens’ Friends. Our cooperative success means that now, many hungry Sri Lankan children will not have go to school with an empty stomach.
The project sponsors one year of hearty breakfasts for a group of school children who otherwise would start their school day on an empty stomach. The project is the brainchild of Noomi who wanted to give something back to her country of origin. With the help of Ramon Sanchez-Lovy and Sri Lankas Children’s Friends, the project was started for 50 children. With RCSI’s donation the project will be able to be expanded to include another school in the Suburbs of Columbo.

Wedensday evening at the The Hotel Hellsten, at the RCSI’s meeting place, the 22nd of May 2019, we hosted a wine and cheese event. More than 50 members, friends and supporters showed up to mingle, network, eat, drink and enjoy contributing to this important project. The evening finished with an auction where we raised additional funds from donated auction items. We are happy to announce that we raised over 20,000 Swedish Crowns in support of the project, which was far above our goal of 15,000 SEK.
