Workshop for all Sri Lankans in Auckland who may have affected by the recent natural disasters

ඔබ මෑතකදී ඔික්ලන්ඩ් හි ඇතිවූ ස්වාභාවික විපත්වලින් පීඩාවට පත්වුනාද? එසේ නම් නොවරවදවාම මේ වැඩමුලුවට සහභාගිවන්න. අප සංගමයේ සාමාජිකයෛකු වීම අවශ්‍ය නොවේ – 

We have organized a workshop for all Sri Lankans in Auckland who may have affected by the recent natural disasters (Cyclone Gabrielle and floods etc.) in order to help them get relief from stress. Dr Antonio Fernando, a renowned psychiatrist and Senior Lecturer from University of Auckland, will address you after an introduction address by Mr Daya Prathapasinghe on Psychosocial Wellbeing. A “Q & A Session” will follow. Further, we have organized a dinner for the participants followed by a relaxation musical session.


Date:   25th  June (Sunday) at 6.00pm

Venue:     Panmure Community Hall, 7/13, Pilkington  Road, Panmure.

Word of Thanks

At our last AGM we decided to create a website for USLA and two of our committee members (Upali and Chandra) volunteered to do it for us. Now we have a beautiful website, up and running, telling the world who we are, what USLA does and how we can be beneficial to our members and the whole community.

As the President USLA, I am extremely grateful to ‘Littlewebcreators’ ( (Upali & Chandra’s little group!) for their generosity in doing this excellent work, free of charge, for the benefit of our Association and the community. Thanks to Littlewebcreators for your job well done!
