This year’s event is also endorsed by former Sri Lankan Cricketer Muttaih
Muralitharan, former Sri Lanka Cricket Captain Kumar Sangakkara and current Sri Lanka Cricket Captain Angelo Mathews. To initiate support for worthwhile
projects of this nature elevating the standards especially for improved health care and career guidance opportunities for students are hugely admirable particularly in the context of not forgetting one’s own nation as well as your alma mater whilst being overseas. Such contributions collectively will enable a positive
change that we all aspire to achieve for the greater well-being of our people.
