Our Vision & Mission

Our vision

FODAD's vision is one where the people of Ratmalana and the neighbouring areas enjoy access to a decent education, healthcare, community facilities and sustainable opportunities in order to improve their lives.

Our mission

FODAD's mission is to help bring a long-lasting difference to the lives of those in Ratmalana, Sri Lanka and the surrounding area, whose live were devastated by the 2004 Tsunami, through the provision of education and skills, access to adequate healthcare, support and community facilities and meaningful, sustainable employment.

What we do

FODAD helps some of the forgotten victims of the 2004 Tsunami to rebuild their lives and their community.  

We provide assistance to the local fishermen to generate employment and wealth creation opportunities; we encourage and promote good education by encouraging attendance at school and funding vocational skills; we fund medical professionals and drugs giving access to health facilities and care previously beyond their reach; we support local sports to foster individual talent and develop teamwork; we provide immediate relief to those suffering hardship through no fault of their own.

Realising the vision

We are committed to improve the lives of those who live in poverty, have inadequate housing or suffer from poor health through direct action.

We are accountable to the UK Charity Commission and our supporters and promise that all money raised goes directly to support our mission.  We rely and depend on the generosity of our supporters, donors, volunteers and trustees together to help make a difference and give Shared Hope for a Better Future.
