Dr Asoka Jayasena, a renowned ENT surgeon entered the history books as the first person who set up a rehabilitation centre in his own home for the “little victims” of the massive Tsunami disaster. Thus proving “Charity begins at home”.
Dr. Asoka Jayasena set up a charitable foundation in order to help the hundreds of children who lost their family and homes to the tsunami. Helping children deal with the great loss and directing them to a better future is an extremely challenging task that requires a great deal of commitment. He established the People IN Need Foundation to give the support and encouragement necessary to create a better future for displaced children through providing them education, accommodation, social well-being and health. Talking about future goals and opportunities is inspiring, but reaching them is never an easy process. The path isn’t smooth. There are twists and turns and unexpected obstacles. Dr Jayasena strongly believes that if we are determined we can reach the goal.
