Unity Tour of Singapore turns out to be a success story

Aided by Emirates Airways and others the Unity Team chosen after the recent U 19 MURALI CUP played several cricket matches in Singapore and participated in several fundraising events for the FOUNDATION OF GOODNESS and its programme of reconcilition via sport. The presence of Kumar Sangakkara and Ravindra Pushpakumara as coaches and Russel Arnold as commentator and raconteur spiced and enhanced the programme. And then, of coure, was Murali the livewire — here there and everywhere. What better ambassadors for Lanka and for the paths of reconciliation: two Tamils, one mixed Sinhala-Tamil (Ravi) and two Sinhalese (Kumar and Kushil).

FOG has committed itself to dividing the proceeds into two halves, with one half being committed to the enrichment of sport in the north and the other in the south.
