BUDS Night was held on 17th November 2017.

The event was well attended by about 300 people and it was a very successful fund raising event celebrating its 30 year history.

BUDS thanks everyone who supported this night.

BUDS is reaching 30 years this year and is still continuing the good work which was done in the past.

BUDS provided help and assistance to many people in need in Batticaloa district, such as supporting Orphanages, Foster care Programme(AEDU), Health Organisations, like Batticaloa Medical Association, Educational organisations and the poor people who were displaced due to war, poverty and natural disasters, specially widows and children.

In April 2017, UK Branch agreed to fund a building for the Valvagam, Society of Differently Able People in Vavunatheevu, Batticaloa, under the supervision of BUDS branch there.

In September 2017, this building was completed and the special school children have started to use this space for their learning activities. The cost of this project was about £1,250.

In the meantime, BUDS UK have continued to support Children Foster Care project in Batticaloa district. This project was started soon after Tsunami in 2004.

In the forthcoming years the aim will be empowerment of younger people into BUDS UK to uplift this charity with great team working, collaboration with other organisations which shows interest in development of education, health, and various investment in projects to support the livelihood of poor people in Batticaloa district.
