Mistoria Community Support Projects

The Mistoria Group and our founder Mish Liyanage are in the fortunate position to be able to financially support a range of community projects both in the UK and internationally.

Mission

Mistoria Foundation is dedicated to empowering and uplifting smaller charities that have a profound impact on their communities. By focusing on the 3 Ps – Pupils (students and young adults), People (wider community members), and Patients (supporting hospitals and NHS Trusts) – our mission is to foster environments where education, community well-being, and healthcare support thrive. Through strategic partnerships and targeted support, we aim to catalyze positive change and build a stronger, more resilient society.

Offering

Our offerings are centered around providing financial assistance, resources, and expertise to charities and initiatives that align with our core focus areas. By carefully selecting projects that promise the highest impact in education, community development, and healthcare support, we ensure that our contributions make a significant difference. Our approach includes grant funding, project sponsorship, volunteer support, and advocacy for causes that resonate with our mission.

Value Proposition

Mistoria Foundation brings a unique blend of passion, expertise, and resources to the charitable sector. Our value lies in our ability to identify and support underrepresented causes that can make a substantial difference in the lives of pupils, people, and patients. By focusing on these key areas, we not only provide immediate assistance but also contribute to long-term improvements in education, community welfare, and health services. Our commitment to making a measurable impact positions us as a key player in driving social change and supporting the growth of smaller charities with big potentials.

As a property company, we consider homelessness a major issue in the country. Via various social property investment initiatives, Mistoria would like to play a key role in, if not eradicating, at least minimising the social impact of homelessness in the community by working with similar like minded people and businesses.

Mish, who was born and raised in Sri Lanka before moving to the UK, has chosen to support some fantastic causes for young, vulnerable and poverty stricken people and also for those who have suffered through conflict in different parts of the world.

Details of all of the current projects and organisations we are supporting are outlined below and we hope you and your colleagues will join with us in supporting these great projects.

Charities we proudly support

Our 2022 Foundation Gala

Liverpool Oncology Unit

As part of our 10 year celebrations, we raised money for The Eye Tumour Research Fund, which supports the experts in cancers and other tumours of the eye at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University hospitals.  Their success is down to patients who donate tissue for research and also from generous financial support provided by previous patients helping to purchase state of the art equipment to study eye tumours. Patients travel from across the world to be treated by their dedicated team.

After receiving exceptional care and successful treatment at the Liverpool Oncology Centre, our CEO, Mish Liyanage, felt that the Centre was a worthy recipient of our support. His personal experience with the Centre shows the importance of continued investment in new research facilities whilst delivering a high level of care to patients and their families.

We were proud to raise a total of £2911.54 for the Fund.

Meththa Foundation

The foundation’s motto is “Waste Not Want Not” and this charity, founded in Birmingham in 1995, serves disabled people in Sri Lanka. It gained charity status in the UK in 2010 (Charity number 1135141).

Their main activity has been the supply of prosthetic limbs for those injured by war in Sri Lanka and to date they have supplied over 5500 using recycled components from the UK for the most needy patients in Sri Lanka. With 2 state of the art clinics in the country, the foundation has now expanded its operations to other war torn areas such as Northern Uganda. Here they are using their expertise to train local prosthetists who will also visit their clinics for further training in 2019.

Mistoria is supporting Meththa Foundation with financial sponsorship of a cultural evening for 150 guests taking place at Worsley Courthouse on 14th December. Our CEO Mish Liyanage will also make a presentation to the assembled guests, and the profits from the ticket sales will all be channelled to the Foundation and the incredible life-saving work that they do.

APSL Scholarships

Education is an incredibly important element of developing individuals and overcoming poverty. Although education has been free in Sri Lanka since independence back in 1948, over the years it has become competitive and costly, thereby putting a good education beyond the reach of the poor. The Scholarship Scheme was launched in 2014 as part of APSL’s 10th birthday celebrations, as a vehicle that would enable many people, both members and non-members alike, to support this vision. Mistoria are a key supporter of the APSL Scholarship Scheme whose aim is to help gifted children in Sri Lanka continue their education and minimise the risk of dropping off school due to poverty. The Scholarship Scheme provides:
  • Sri Lankans in the UK with a simple and efficient channel for ‘putting something back’, that will help transform the lives of the next generation,
  • Colleagues and friends of Sri Lanka, with an opportunity to contribute to an initiative that will make a real and lasting difference in the lives of poor.
