Palm Roots 2013 is a silent auction organized to raise funds for Durgapuram Mahalir Illam in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Durgapuram Mahalir Illam (Home for Girls) is doing a tremendous job in raising young women amidst the gender gap, child labour and child trafficking issues that exists in many countries with Sri Lanka being no exception to it.
I felt that managing an orphanage of this sort deserves more
recognition and support. Being a photographer, I have always had the
drive to combine my creative work with charity and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect opportunity to initiate this project.
My photographs will vary from nature shots from around Sri
Lanka/Toronto and some famous landmarks in Jaffna which I got to see
for the very first time this year.
All proceeds of this auction will be donated directly to Durgapuram
Mahalir Illam (Home for Girls) in Tellipalai (Jaffna, Srilanka) via a
reliable medium which will be explained in further detail at the
A donation box will be available for those who aren’t interested in
bidding. Online transaction services will be available; cash & cheques accepted as well.
