Love and protection of a aparent is necessary for a child. Once a baby is born, he/she becomes the sensor of the family.
However with the help of some kind-hearted people, some of them get to live in orphanages, and only God knows what happens to the others.
There are many orphanages for children around the country. Most of them are well maintained and function for the betterment of children, with the help of the public.
The Girls' Orphanage in Delkanda is also one such home dedicated specially for orphaned girls.
There are about 150 girls from the ages 2-17 at this place. Unlike boys, girls need a lot of awareness and protection.
Girls need parental care most and in order to fulfil their desires, the senior Girl Guides of Anula Vidyalaya, Nugegoda organised a Bak Maha Ulela for them on April 10, at the Orphanage. Principal of Anula Vidyalaya, Kalyani Gunasekara, Senior Guide Captain Dr. Vajira Wanigasekara, two Guide Captains of the school B.S. Tennakoon and Avanthi Thalewela and Guide Captain of Lyceum International Mala Wijeypala were also present on the occasion.
It was a day filled with fun and frolic for the girls. There were many games organised for them; hurdle race, paper dance, fancy dress parade, and locating the hidden guest were some of them.
Tug-o-War between senior guides and the girls was also an event, which raised the level of adrenalin of both the teams.
Going on par with a traditional 'Avurudu Ulela,' items such as breaking the pot and 'keeping an eye' on the blind elephant were also included in the agenda.
During the events, girls from Anula Vidyalaya and children from the orphanage entertained spectators by performing magnificent items.
Just before the conclusion, there were a few items of dance and music which were entertaining and helped everyone to relax. The orphan girls enjoyed themselves very much as it was a day different from their normal schedule.
