Multicultural NSW of the New South Wales Government has extended a sponsorship to further upgrade the Ozlanka Community Website. Ozlanka is very grateful to Multicultural NSW for this timely sponsorship, as an upgrade was essential to maintain and improve the services to the Sri Lankan Community living in New South Wales.
Ozlanka community website operates for all Sri Lankans in Sydney, NSW including Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslim, Burgher and Malay communities. Ozlanka hosts the community event calendar, publishes local news and features of interest to the community, accommodates sharing photos and videos in particular from community events, hosts community publications, publishes latest Sri Lanka news and current affairs and much more. With the new upgrade, Ozlanka plans to improve the disseminating key NSW Government COVID-19 messaging and health information targeting Sri Lankan communities. Further, Ozlanka plans to enhance the website with number of features to reach new audiences.
Ozlanka Community website (ozlanka.com) was established in 1999 by the distinguished community member Imtiaz Issadeen. After 20 years of continuous operation by Imtiaz, in September 2019, Ozlanka was transferred to the Sinhalese Cultural Centre, Not-for-Profit organisation, a Registered Charity in Australia NSW, to continue the community service to the Sri Lankan Community in Sydney.
