Exhibition of Art by Tsunami Effected Children 2006

From 2006-05-02 to 2006-05-30

It is estimated that nearly 400 schools have been seriously damaged, and approximately 4000 children have been displaced due to the calamity caused by the Tsunami waves that swept the Sri Lankan coastal areas on 26th of December 2004. In collaboration with the Goethe Institut in Colombo, Theertha has been conducting a program at the Kithulewela Jayamaha Vihara relief camp at Matara to provide attention and care for the displacednchildren. Through visitations every week Theertha members provide them with a play environment by introducing games, and engaging in drawing and painting activities with children. The program held for a period of one year. Some of the artworks done by these children were exhibited at the Goethe Institute in May 2006.
