Welcome to PINA Organisation Sri Lanka

The P I N A Organisation is a humanitarian, development-aimed organisation, functioning in Sri Lanka since 1988

We help people in need, irrespective of ethnicity, religion, age or social standing. Our vision is to provide all Sri Lankans with a better standard of living and to lend a hand to families who are facing hard times and to those who cannot help themselves. All members of P I N A work voluntarily and free of charge.

Our mission statement is simply to never give up hope. Today P I N A has seen more than 28 years of successful growth and operations in Sri Lanka. There were late nights, obstacles and sheer impossible tasks to overcome, but there were also tears of joy, accomplishments and moments we will take on for the rest of our lives. The knowledge, that we have contributed, even in the smallest way, to the betterment and development of Sri Lanka, is not only a satisfying thought, but a deed that speaks for us as humans and who we are at heart.

We believe in helping one person at a time, hoping that in the end, we contribute to the social development of society as a whole.

Future projects
