A Mother’s Day with a difference

The Mount Lavinia Hotel organized a fun filled afternoon for mothers from the Janadara Elders’ Home in Moratuwa and the SOS Village in Piliyandala, to celebrate Mother’s Day, and step out of their usual surroundings to spend time at the Hotel.

“We wanted to give a chance to these mothers to have a different experience. It’s not often that they get the opportunity to leave the premises.

We not only wanted to ensure that this Mother’s Day is a special and memorable one for them, but also ensure that our relationship and what we can do for these mothers is not just limited to a day, and will continue beyond Mother’s Day,” said Group General Manager, Mount Lavinia Hotel, Bazeer Cassim.

The program included a special lunch, entertainment acts, as well as some acts by the mothers themselves, who participated.

Mount Lavinia Hotel’s very own Deshabandhu Chef Publis Silva and veteran actors from the popular Sri Lankan teledrama Kopi Kade, also joined the celebrations.

Mothers from both, the Janadara Elders’ Home in Moratuwa and the SOS Children’s Village in Piliyandala expressed their gratitude for an afternoon filled with laughter”.

Devini Tissaaratchy, Deputy Director of Fund Development & Communication SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka, concluding the session said, “Thank you very much for the wonderful gift you have given our mothers”.
