Welcome to

Sri Lanka Saukyadana Movement

Saukyadana saw its birth at the foot of Adam's peak over 50 years ago. Dr. Vajiranath Lakshman de Silva, a young doctor at the time, was on pilgrimage during the pilgrimage season of 1959. Whilst there he was moved by the difficulties the pilgrims encounter due to the lack of medical aid services. Inspired, on his return to Colombo he established Saukyadana with the aim providing medical aid to the pilgrims of Adam's peak and other such areas of need.

The strategy employed by the movement was to motivate doctors, nurses and other Para-medical personnel to educate and train the youth of Sri Lanka in health and first aid. Trained volunteers would then run medical aid programs in areas of need.

"Saukyadana" means freely giving of the gift of health to another. When choosing this name, Dr. de Silva envisaged Suakyadana as not only promoting the wellbeing of Sri Lanka's who did not have access to adequate health care, but also a vehicle by which to train the youth of Sri Lanka to be healthy, self confidant, self reliant youth with the needed leaderships and humanist qualities to take the country forward.
