My Travel Story

I have been strongly compelled to take on this opportunity due to regrettable circumstances Sri Lankans have had to face. With communities still recovering from a 25-year civil war, and destructions from the tsunami in 2004, mental health support facilities are seriously lacking. This had caused drastic repercussions, with mental health disorders (morbid depression, alcohol abuse etc.) rising. As such, I would to go out there and do everything I can do to help, and so any donations to help me get there would mean the world!
