In 1980 a young couple started helping two extremely poor families living in the Dehiwela / Mount Lavinia beach slums in Sri Lanka by sharing what little they had. Soon they were helping a few more people and Community Concern Society was birthed. Within the next few years, (CCS) officially became a non-profit, charitable, non-governmental Christian organization. Their only goal was to express compassion for the poor by helping the oppressed and needy. Today CCS is a thriving dynamic organization assisting the local community with many programs along with a number of national initiatives that touch the lives of thousands of men, women and children every day.
