|The move from Ottawa (Nov 12-2010) was done with Nandana Gajanayaka, Nandana Ranasinghe, Sajith Jayasooriya, Asoka Vidyaratna, Viresh Wickremasinghe , and Anajali Dharmawardana helping to move out the wheel chairs from Fulton, Ottawa Road garage to Sarath Amarakoon's warehouse in Kanata, for eventual shipping to Toronto and Colombo via Ceycan. This was mostly the consignment from Perth and Tisarana.||They were shipped to Colombo in January, and collected by Mr. Channa Bopage, for OSDASA (Organization for Skills Development and Social Assistance), an organization where Nandana Gajanayaka has been personally involved from the founding stage. WC4SL donations covered the expenses in moving, shipping, customs, and also contributed $140.00 to the expenses of OSDASA which also spent its own funds. See Donations.||The wheelchairs were moved to a free storage location at Sri Visuddharama temple in Indipalegoda, Pitigala. Many of the wheel chairs needed repairs and refurbishing cushions etc. This was done by OSDASA who also identified suitable recipients of wheel chairs and held a wheel-chairs donation and blood-donor clinic in the Pitigala area, using the Temple resources as the venue. Nanadana Gajanayaka attended the session in Sri Lanka and spoke explaining the role of the Ottawa donors through WC4SL and OSDASA.||The additional district secretary (Additional GA) of Galle - Mr. Bandula Harischandra, Assistant District Secretary (AGA) for Niyagama and Maetiviliye Pannyakiththi Thero particiipated as invited guests. Many in Ottawa know Ven. Maetiviliye P from his Vassaana sojourn at the Hilda Jayawardena Temple in 2010. Some 57 people donated blood. A newspaper report appeared in the Lankadeepa.|
