$10k grant

A GRANT of $10,000 from the Ministry of Social Welfare will be used towards the care and nutrition facilities provided to 14 children with disabilities living at the Hilton hostel.

The grant is channelled towards the Hilton hostel, which provides hostel care for students of Hilton Special School and Hilton Early Intervention Centre, as well as individuals with severe to profound disabilities.

Hilton Organisation CEO Sureni Perera said the hostel provided the children with care and nutrition, health and hygiene requirement and medical support.

"We have a strict nutrition policy in place keeping with the drive to decrease NCDs and the children are also guided in home gardening projects," Mrs Perera said.

"They receive supervision with their studies and are encouraged to be independent in all their personal needs.

"We are keen to stay focused on and not divert from the original objectives for which the hostel was found, which is to provide hostel facilities to students who require the services of the schools managed by the Hilton Organisation."

She said while the organisation provided the best care for students at the hostel, they strongly encouraged family support towards their care.

"However, should the need arise to extend our services to a child with a disability who has no family support, we always do so."
