Mahesan Kandaiya, President 1937-2019

With the greatest sadness we inform our partners and supporters of the passing of our founder and President, Mahesan (Tony) Kandaiya. Tony passed away on Saturday 19th January after a 2 year battle with cancer. He will be remembered by all who knew him and worked with him as a generous, good, and wise man with a wonderful sense of humor, great empathy, and absolute dedication to helping the underserved especially in village schools in Sri Lanka. PIMD will continue his work as he would wish, with renewed vigor and commitment in his honour. He is irreplaceable and remains in our hearts forever.

Donna Vaughan, Vice President
