In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory: Shivan Velautham

___________________________

We are deeply saddened to announce that Shivan Velautham passed away last night at his home. Our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.

Shivan leaves with us not only touching memories, but a permanent inspiration for disabled children in Sri Lanka and further afield. To his father, Ganesh, he gave the strength to open the Shivan Foundation from nothing and grow it from a single-centre outpost in 2013 to fourteen branches across the entire country today (and counting), providing much needed medical, educational and social assistance to children with special needs, their parents and carers. The impact of Ganesh’s work in his native country is unparalleled. But the work does not end here. Thanks to the many people who have been touched by Shivan – his family, friends, our staff, supporters and volunteers – his memory will live on forever and prevail as the fundamental inspiration behind the Shivan Foundation.
