We are saddened by the demise of Mr. Sam Wijesinha who served as Chairman from the inception of SLCDF. He informed us in advance that he was resigning from his position as the Chair at the Annual General Meeting. On his invitation we had the AGM at his residence but due to ill health he could not participate in the AGM on 26th August, 2014 and passed away five days later on the 31st of August. He was such an unassuming person and was a strong supporter of SLCDF. We will sorely miss him. May he attain the Blissful state of Nibbana!
