MJF Charitable Foundation

The MJF Charitable Foundation was set up by Dilmah Founder Merrill J. Fernando to fulfill his commitment to sharing the success of his Dilmah brand with the underprivileged, the disabled and children. The work of the Foundation is supported by the sale of Dilmah Tea in over 100 countries around the world and is portrayed through the projects set up country-wide and thousands of people afforded a life of possibility through its efforts.

“We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing. The wealth some of us acquire is owed to the efforts and cooperation of many others around us. Let us therefore share that wealth, while we are still around, so that the goodwill and contentment created thereby, may make our world a happier place for others too.”
