There are many reasons for a person to follow a certain course of action. But more often than not the reason lies within us. It is close to our hearts, and we do what we do because it makes sense to us.
For Damitha Senaka Karunarathne, that reason came with his sister giving birth to a wonderful child, Kosala, who was born with Down syndrome. Having spent the better part of his life observing and being delighted by his nephew, Damitha had a vision of reaching out to children with special needs across the island, spreading the same joy, zest and hope for life that his nephew possessed. Thus he took the first steps to start an organization that is synonymous today with catering for people with special needs in Sri Lanka – the Kosala Dullewa Foundation for Children with Special Needs (KDF). The organization strives to educate the communities these children live in; change society’s attitudes towards people living with mental and physical disabilities; and empower children to work towards independently contributing to their society. Since leading the organization as president o f the board of trustees, Damitha has lobbied and achieved recognition for KDF under the parliamentary Act No: 39 of 2009.
To be the pioneer service organisation for mobilizing and promoting health and well being of children with special needs in Sri Lanka.
