Dr. Diyanath Samarasinghe – Psychiatrist – Honorary Patron and Director of Nest Training

“Nest has functioned actively and for long enough to contribute as a valued member of any strong worldwide group which has the good of the public at its heart. The particular interest of Nest is in promoting well being especially among those who are marginalized for reasons such as being considered mentally ill or infected with the HIV virus. It also stands up uncompromisingly for the rights of people who are victimized because they are powerless – and, this includes women and children and other segments of the population that are considered weak and open to easy abuse or exploitation.”
