About The Colombo Friend-in-Need Society

Established in 1831 under the patronage of Governor Sir Edward Barnes, the Colombo Friend-in-Need Society (CFINS) is the oldest charitable organisation in Sri Lanka. Since its founding days, CFINS has upheld the tradition of having the current Head of State as the ex-officio Patron. Their activities are managed and directed by a Board of Management consisting entirely of volunteers among whom are several leading members of the Medical Profession, Engineers, Company Directors and Executives from the Corporate Sector.
CFINS aims to provide all types of artificial limbs for all individuals who have lost their limbs (both upper and lower) due to landmines, other explosives, road and train accidents, and illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and vascular diseases.
