Why Support Ayati

Ayati Trust is a national charity involving The Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya and the private sector coming together to find a long-term, sustainable solution for children with disabilities across Sri Lanka.
Disability is a large and growing issue which is often left an unapproached subject in Sri Lanka. An estimated 20% of children in Sri Lanka have some form of mental or physical disability. These children and their families are frequently subjected to myths and negative stereotyping which often results in parents keeping their child hidden from the world without seeking the proper intervention. This results in the child retreating into themselves and becoming even more socially unskilled.
It is the right of all children to have access to healthcare, education and social participation.
Research has shown that through early detection and intervention a child’s mental and physical state can be significantly improved.
However currently, there is a lack of awareness and access to professional help. Desperate parents are often sent from place to place with nowhere to turn to.
