When the recent floods hit different parts of the island, you would have seen one name popping up in various places asking for donations and getting help and rescue to where it was needed the most. They were there with relief work, from rescuing those affected in boats, to bringing them back to safe and dry locations and providing rations and hot, hot meals every single day, around the clock.
Beyond emergency relief, they transitioned to long term development work, from cleaning to resettling operations. They went that extra mile for people affected by the floods and made certain that those who lost everything were aided in every way possible.
The Voice Foundation has been operational long before the 2016 floods and not only in relief work. They cover a wide variety of short term and long term projects wherever and whenever there is a need.
The Voice Foundation works towards the protection of children, creating safe environments for children to grow in and also creating public awareness about child sexual abuse. The Voice Foundation is involved in advocacy and creating awareness regarding child sexual abuse. In light of this, the foundation will be hosting a walk in October.
The purpose of this walk is to make parents and society aware of their duties towards the wellbeing and protection of children in light of the current state of child abuse in the country. For more information on the walk visit their event page for updates.
