“Sanasumata Maga (Way to Comfort)” NGO was founded in 2012, by formalizing the many long years of community service performed by a dedicated group of people such as Professor Lakshman Madurasinghe Lawyer and Behavioural Scientist, Dr Anoma Wijenayake Weeraratne International director of women’s empowerment AUGP USA, Mr Tharindu Wijenayake International President of UNGDO USA lead by Rev.Dr. W.

Before the official incorporation of the organization, when Sri Lanka was hit by the Tsunami of 2004 we mobilized ourselves immediately providing food and shelter for nearly 500 families and looked after their health and sanitary requirements, till they were able to regain their livelihoods. Presently we conduct many Health Camps around needy areas of the Island. During these camps, various medical services are provided with a view of upgrading the living conditions of these communities. Way to Comfort NGO is also instrumental in constructing buildings to schools with less infrastructural facilities. We are also instrumental in raising donations internally and externally to construct houses for many needy families. All houses are complete with all basic needs which will enable healthy and happy living conditions for the beneficiaries. We are sponsors for a large number of low income families and victims of the thirty year long civil war and we ensure all of their day to day requirements are met, while education for all children and safety of women is ensured. We also gradually train them in some life skills allowing them to be independent in years to come by promoting and educating them based on the Sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
“Sanasumata Maga (Way to Comfort)” NGO is brainchild by the Wijenayake family to carry on generations of social services done by them. The Wijenayake family having come from the Gem City in Southern region of Sri Lanka, hail from generations of patron of social service done with their own will and funds for the Sri Lankan Society. Notable services of the Wijenayake family includes a complete ward constructed to the Rathnapura General Hospital at a much needed time, access roads to remote villages, houses for the needy families, construction of schools, places of worship and donations of medical, health care supplies and distribution of stationary to school children.
