Colombo race course in 1913
Student visa valid up to duration of the course is granted to foreign students coming to Sri Lanka to pursue a course of regular and fulltime academic studies in a recognized institution. Students under 16 years of age can apply visa for Parents / guardians to remain in the country.
Students MUST have Entry Visa before traveling to Sri Lanka. Approval for entry visa for students is processed only in Colombo by the Department of Immigration. Sri Lanka Diplomatic Missions are not issuing Entry Visa for students unless prior entry visa approval is given by the Immigration Department in Colombo.
Colombo has been cleaned up and beautified, now we need to support the clean up of the nearby cities. The local municipalities are in need of guidance as the spread of disease and dengue is on the rise in these areas, and it will also affect Colombo.
Wattala Town, Sri Lanka
We need the support of the Wattala municipality to assist in cleaning up the Palliyawatte beach road leading to Preethipura road. Garbage is dumped everywhere on the land and in the seas due to non collection of garbage. The area is becoming popular for families and shore fishing. It's not the fault of the people dumping garbage on the land and in the seas as no one is collecting or providing areas to dump garbage. This is becoming vey unsafe and unhealthy to those living in the area.
Non collection of garbage leads to breading grounds for mosquitoes (Dengue)
Garbage comes from homes, hotels, shops and so on in the area who are forced to dump on the land or sea as collection and disposal by the authority is not done
Unsafe and unhealthy for families visiting the beaches as they are covered with filthy rubbish, glass, cans/tins including needles which is a risk of the 1000's who visit the beaches, mainly on the weekends.
There are plenty of homes, hotels(Pegasus, Lofty, Araliya to name a few), Churches, Shops, the Preethipura Home, a Machan Bar, Dikkowita fisheries harbour, and large areas of beach where many families enjoy their weekends.
I feel till this is sorted, no one has any right to charge or warn anyone for disposing garbage in the wrong areas or even hold them responsible for creating breeding grounds for dengue as they are left with no choice. These people are the ones who at risk due to no action from the local authority to dispose of the their rubbish.
I've lived here for 30 years and the area has developed, lets not let it go back.
Appreciate if someone can help. Please pass the message to anyone who can help.
Photocause is a non-profit project launched by two very young armature photographers in 2011, with parental guidance and management. The key objective is to sell photographs taken by them and collect funds for the Sri Lanka Cancer Society. The two enthusiastic and now qualified photographers are two sisters, Mary Shanaya and Carmel Nayantara, now aged 14 & 12.
