Donate to Children in Shelters through ARC’s Ramazan Collection



Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC) invites and encourages the public to take part in its annual Ramazan Collection for Children’s Shelters, and donate gifts to children in need. The donations will go a long way to enriching the lives of close to 100 boys and girls of ages ranging from 0-18 living in Kudakudhinge Hiya, Amaan Hiya (Villimale) and Education and Training Centre for Children (Maafushi).

The collection period will be from 6th June to 12th June 2015. The ARC office at Nooraanee Villa, Alikilegefaanu Magu will be open for collections from 15:00 to 18:00 every day. Please ensure that your donations are in excellent condition (new or gently used items). For further details, please contact 7840360 or 3338783 during these hours.

Thanks to the community’s generosity, ARCs previous collections were a great success and the children look forward to it every year. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted, and your gifts given in the spirit of Ramazan will bring much joy to the children.
