- “Livelihood assistance for women headed families” through Sangami Womens in Mullaitivu

Once again we proved that there are so many good gods among us. During the show, Senthil Kumaran - founder of “Hearts For Humanity” made a plea asking people to come on stage to donate a minimum of $500 each, while knelling down and singing the Tamil song "Isai Kettal Puvi Asainthaadum". A stroll of people rushed and gave a total of $18,000 just during those 5 minutes showing their support for this good cause.
All the expenses of the show for the fundraiser were taken care of by Senthil Kumaran and 100% of donations were given to the cause.
Thanks to all those who supported & donated.
