The nearly three decade protracted ethnic conflict in the North of Sri Lanka took a heavy toll on its civilian life, economy, administration, development and peace in the area. The Foundation led projects in the North have the objective to facilitate and assist the post war re-construction of Sri Lanka’s Northern region, which is still finding its feet.
On November 19, 2016, the MJF Charitable Foundation inaugurated a new Outpatient Department and Administrative Block for the Kayts Base Hospital, in the North of Sri Lanka, fulfilling a long-felt need in this once war-torn region, now in the process of a renaissance, postwar.
When the tsunami devastation deprived many individuals of their livelihoods, business establishments and the tools of their trade, in addition to the loss of life, the Foundation helped the affected to reestablish themselves by identifying those who had the capability, commitment and desire to better themselves and their families, by translating their commitment and dedication into a product or service.
The MJF Charitable Foundation has always worked towards countering discrimination towards the differently-abled. In this regard many wide-ranging programmes have been implemented to provide these individuals with necessary care and attention to help them become productive citizens and lead independent lives.
In a bid to counter this perception, the MJF Charitable Foundation initially began providing assistance to the Ratmalana School for the Hearing & Visual Impaired, on the outskirts of Colombo, and then moved onto sponsoring similar schools in more remote areas where funding is scarce.
