Rally to Care

‘Rally to Care’ is an initiative by Dialog Foundation in aid of those who were affected by the tragic incidents of 21st April 2019 (Easter Sunday). Rally to Care was initiated to provide immediate term outpatient support for victims of physical disability and trauma, and continues its mission today by providing long-term educational support for 500+ children and psychosocial rehabilitation for 250+ families, together with its partners World Vision Lanka, the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement (Sarvodaya), My Doctor, Vision Care and the Ratmalana Audiology Centre.

Rally to Care concluded its fundraising on 24th May 2019, and with the generous support of Dialog customers, individual donors (overseas and local), business partners and enterprises, generated a relief fund of Rs. 116.69 million.

A breakdown of the contributions is as follows:

Dialog customers, individual and corporate donations Rs. 37.71Mn
Dialog Axiata PLC contribution Rs. 43.72Mn
Axiata Group donation Rs. 35.26Mn
Total Rally to Care fund Rs. 116.69Mn

A key part of Rally to Care is the scholarship programme created to support the long-term education of the 353 children affected by the tragic Easter Sunday attacks. The scholarship scheme will continue until the children reach 19 years of age and complete their schooling to ensure a bright future ahead – one filled with hope and opportunity. These funds are distributed in April, August and December of each year, with 60% being credited to the student’s account and 40% to the guardian’s account to be used to meet the child’s ancillary needs. The scholarship programme, which commenced in July 2019, met the ongoing educational needs of 357 children in 2020 – 185 from Katuwapitiya, 102 from Kochchikade and 70 from Batticaloa.
