10th June 2006


Maldives Aid is delighted to announce the completion of the playground in Thaa Atoll, Madifushi Island donated by Media Innovations Group and Peak Development, in Memory of Peter Weston.  The Playground was supplied and installed by Male based company Omadu.






The opening ceremony took place on the 23rd of May, in the presence of the island chief, the Youth NGO that facilitated the project, the local school teachers and headmaster, the Maldives Aid Coordinator as well as parents and pupils. The ceremony began with a minute of silence in the memory of Peter Weston tragically who lost his life on the day of the Tsunami in the Maldives. The first speech was given by the president of the Youth NGO, followed by Maldives Aid Coordinator Mariyam Seena, the school headmaster and the Island Chief.

The playground was formally handed over to the school headmaster and the impatient children rushed to play on the colourful set of swings and slides.
