    the terribly sad news of Shivan s passing It made me stop and think for a lengthy period of time I thought about this amazing young man who I got to know as a much smaller child at Sunshine House A young man so gentle yet so vibrant and someone with enormous determination He liked what he liked and he loved life I then thought about you and your incredible family It is not easy for us ordinary people to share time or space with someone of your immense personality drive determination and passion You were inspired by Shivan but it is you who has ensured that his name will live for ever and will change the lives of many young people for ever Love to all your family and be assured that my thoughts and prayers are with you Sincerely David Miller Headteacher Pebble Brook School Aylesbury Bringing out the best in everyone www pebblebrookschool org uk A Tribute to Shivan Letter 0 Comments Thursday July 9 2015 by The Shivan Foundation No greater love could ever be given by Edna Leela and yourself to a fellow human being Shivan was always at the centre of your lives with no time energy or expense spared in giving him the very best life humanly possible I was privileged to experience but a snapshot of this in action in Copse Way Anglesey and Kandy The many memories of Shivan spring to mind As Shivan grew and became stronger and heavier the words okay son as you lift him in and out of your specially adapted people carrier requiring Herculean strength but you just did it with the team in support On one occasion at a harbour front pub in Moelfre Anglesey where we occupied the centre table outside with Shivan in animated form with his Winnie the Pooh music which seemed to be his favourite many of the others eating looking on rather awkwardly but how right you were to give Shivan a normal life as possible for which I was so full of admiration On Anglesey they don t forget your visits At the Beach Motel John often asks is your friend and his son returning You left an indelible memory that they still talk about with you going into the hotel kitchen and making special vegetarian chapattis that Shivan liked I personally was also very touched with you and your family making the effort to attend my mother s funeral in Anglesey with Shivan Your travels on planes with Shivan were made to look so easy when for mere mortals like ourselves travelling alone is quite an achievement often done with fear and trepidation Shivan was right at the centre and a real high spot in your life was the opening of the Shivan Foundation in Kandy some 2 years ago to which I was privileged to attend with 800 guests present and it is so fitting that with the loss of Shivan his memory and the Foundation will

    occupied the centre table outside with Shivan in animated form with his Winnie the Pooh music which seemed to be his favourite many of the others eating looking on rather awkwardly but how right you were to give Shivan a normal life as possible for which I was so full of admiration On Anglesey they don t forget your visits At the Beach Motel John often asks is your friend and his son returning You left an indelible memory that they still talk about with you going into the hotel kitchen and making special vegetarian chapattis that Shivan liked I personally was also very touched with you and your family making the effort to attend my mother s funeral in Anglesey with Shivan Your travels on planes with Shivan were made to look so easy when for mere mortals like ourselves travelling alone is quite an achievement often done with fear and trepidation Shivan was right at the centre and a real high spot in your life was the opening of the Shivan Foundation in Kandy some 2 years ago to which I was privileged to attend with 800 guests present and it is so fitting that with the loss of Shivan his memory and the Foundation will live on helping other disabled children with special needs and subsequently with the opening of many other centres throughout Sri Lanka Quite a legacy and more than 99 9 of the population cannot lay claim to How inadequate most of our lives are when measured against such immense achievements as yours but all inspired and made possible by the LIFE OF SHIVAN His memory will indeed live forever I feel drawn to say that on a personal note my business involvement with you was made possible for me because of your immense compassion and caring for Shivan No man in my opinion with those credentials would not be honourable My instincts have proved me right My sincere condolences to you and your family Arthur In Loving Memory Shivan Velautham 0 Comments Tuesday July 7 2015 by The Shivan Foundation We are deeply saddened to announce that Shivan Velautham passed away last night at his home Our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends Shivan leaves with us not only touching memories but a permanent inspiration for disabled children in Sri Lanka and further afield To his father Ganesh he gave the strength to open the Shivan Foundation from nothing and grow it from a single centre outpost in 2013 to fourteen branches across the entire country today and counting providing much needed medical educational and social assistance to children with special needs their parents and carers The impact of Ganesh s work in his native country is unparalleled But the work does not end here Thanks to the many people who have been touched by Shivan his family friends our staff supporters and volunteers his memory will live on forever and prevail as the fundamental inspiration behind the Shivan Foundation
