The BTL Foundation held a major fundraiser for the benefit of Haiti with the help of sponsors, benefactors, volunteers and friends. About 20% of net proceeds of the Funds were already donated to DMRT for its Haiti cause. The remaining funds were matched dollar to dollar by Founder Chairman Bangalore T. Lakshman. The available funds are dedicated to rebuild two destroyed Schools and one Community clean water well at Haiti. As we all know the devastation was far reaching and even now people are struggling for basic needs of life, and thousands of children are still deprived of basic school facilities. Mr. Bangalore T. Lakshman, Chairman of BTL Foundation undertook a trip to Haiti with the sole aim of fulfilling his humble mission. He left on April 20 and returned from Haiti on April 26 2012. Having already identified the Rotary and other local leaders at Haiti, he met and visited potential sites for rebuilding Schools and Community Water well. According to Mr. Lakshman, “This is our commitment towards fulfilling our mission to the thousands of people who are still leading a life without food, water and shelter and the hundreds of children who are still deprived of school facilities.”
