Your dedication, drive and energy have, and continue to be inspirational and your planning and organization superb.  This was extended to the Rose Vl Conference and th parallel commemoration of last 10 years of amazing work.

Now, with the even recently over we are left with the most wonderful memories and impressions of so many aspects of Kalmunai and the projects and operations of Rose Charities Sri Lanka.   And those memories will last for many many years into the future .

So bravo and thank you to you all.  In a world where there is so much need  your team of Rose Charities Sri Lanka  has provide a light of hope for so many.    For this we join with so many you have helped,  in laudation and gratitude.
