The HameediaGroup and Angelo Mathews, Captain of the Sri Lanka Cricket team have once again
partnered with the ‘My Friend’ project to donate school bags, water bottles,
stationary, books and lunch boxes to over 200 school children in need. The ‘My
Friend’ project is an initiative by Hameedia which supports less fortunate
children across the country. Mathews and his wife along with the Hameedia team
visited children from four different schools and encouraged them to work hard
towards their dreams and goals. The school children selected to receive the
supplies came from Muslim, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu schools including Dharusalam Maha Vidyalayam, Methodist
Church City Mission, Rajasinghe Maha Vidyalaya and Colombo Central Hindu Maha Vidyalayam.

The ‘My
Friend’ project is the brainchild of Fouzul Hameed, the Managing Director of
the Hameedia Group and Sri Lanka’s premier menswear consultant who, several years
ago embarked on a mission to improve the lives of children in need across the
country. The project supports the educational needs of underprivileged children
in Sri Lanka and plays a pivotal role in preventing the common eventuality of
school dropouts.
Commenting
on his partnership with the project, Angelo Mathews, Captain of the Sri Lanka
Cricket team and trustee of the initiative stated, “My wife and I are proud to
partner with Hameedia and Fouzul Hameed to support the ‘My Friend’ project. The
objectives of this project are extremely important as many children in Sri
Lanka face difficult circumstances and often drop out of school. We hope that
more people will come forward and support the ‘My Friend’ project because it
plays such an important role in helping underprivileged children throughout our
country. The ‘My Friend’ project supports less fortunate children by providing
them with the basic needs they require to stay in school. The children who are
part of the ‘My Friend’ project are an inspiration to us all. They prove that
with the right amount of hard work and commitment, anything can be achieved. These
traits were crucial to my success and helped me become who I am todaywith the
right support, these children can also achieve success and become the leaders
of the future

Highlighting
the importance of the project, Fouzul Hameed, Founder and Chairman of the ‘My
Friend’ project said, “It gives me great pleasure to support this project with
one of Sri Lanka’s most renowned cricketers, Angelo Mathews and his wife. The
‘My Friend’ project remains committed to ensuring that underprivileged children
throughout the country complete their education and enjoy a bright and
prosperous future. The ‘My Friend’ project supports children despite their
caste, creed and religion by providing them with financial aid as well as
school equipment and various educational supplies and materials.”
Since its
inception, the ‘My Friend’ project has funded thousands of children in need,
helping them overcome poverty and difficult circumstances. The support that the
project gives these children enables them to remain in school and improve their
chances of succeeding in life.
Commenting
on the benefits of the ‘My Friend’ project, Mrs. Thayananthy Sirisoma, the
Principal at Colombo Central Hindu Maha Vidyalayam stated, “The ‘My Friend’
project is a truly great initiative which touches the lives of many children in
Sri Lanka. The school children were extremely excited about Angelo Mathews’
visit and they really cherished the opportunity to spend time with him. The
children are grateful for the assistance the project provides and they appreciate
the role Hameedia plays in supporting them in their efforts to secure a
brighter future.”
