A great time was spent by 108 children in Mahil (be joyful) park on 11th and 16th July 2018. This park was opened by Holy Family sisters at Puthukudiyiruppu in Mullaithevu district on September 2015. The purpose of this accomplishment is to create a non-violent future generation in the traumatized post-war society where violence and abuse on children and women are increasing. At Makil Park, programmes are conducted periodically by Holy Family Sisters to lead these children through a hopeful journey with regular follow-up where they naturally grow in human values.
This time they conducted a creative workshop on the above dates by making the children engage in varieties of life-giving activities like; meditation, mindful walk, art therapy, interactive group sharing and inspiring presentations. In groups, they brought out the values of love, respect and care for others.
This was surely a fruitful gathering!
