The High Commission of Sri Lanka in New Delhi collaborated with the Delhi Commonwealth Women’s Association (DCWA), to co-host its Annual Charity Gala, at the ‘Sri Lanka House’ on 6 April 2024 to raise funds for the Organization’s social welfare projects.

Over its 71 years of existence, the DCWA has made a substantial impact on the lives of the less privileged sections of society through holistic development in healthcare, education, community services and child welfare for the less privileged in India. An important event in the New Delhi social calendar, the charity gala has been co-hosted by several diplomatic missions in the past, attracting the who’s who of New Delhi, as well as members of the extensive diplomatic community and international organizations based in this capital city.


Observing the two nations’ millennia-old historical and civilizational bonds, and ensuing commonalities spanning religion, linguistics, culture and attire, High Commissioner of Sri Lanka to India Kshenuka Senewiratne remarked that through participation in the event, the High Commission also aimed to foster the people-to-people legacy between the two countries, going beyond the traditional realms of diplomacy and statecraft. She added that the two countries are also bound by the sari, and Sri Lanka is proud to have a vibrant apparel industry, and fabric crafted and nurtured by local artisans who have dedicated their lives to this endeavour.


DCWA Chairperson Sunitee Abbi underscored the work being carried out at the Organization’s multi-disciplinary Medical Centre in Delhi, which has treated over 2 million patients and supported the dreams of countless students, special needs children and young adults. She noted that DCWA raises funds solely through donations and events such as the Annual Charity Gala.

Sri Lanka strongly condemns the dastardly terrorist attack which occurred at the Crocus City shopping center in Moscow, Russia on 22 March 2024 causing tragic loss of civilian lives and injury. Such cowardly acts of violence against civilians are abhorrent and have no place in civilized society. 

 

The Government and the people of Sri Lanka extend their heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, the People and the Government of the Russian Federation at this time of grief. 

 

Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations must be unequivocally condemned and eradicated. Sri Lanka reaffirms its commitment to the global fight against terrorism and stands ready to collaborate with the international community to address this grave threat to peace and security. 

 

The Government of Sri Lanka wishes all those who were injured a speedy recovery.
