All the articles of the previous blog were transferred to the website. The blog was managed by Rtr. Ashinsani Fernando. With the website almost ready by the end of October it was decided to show a sneak peak of the website to the members at the General meeting for October on the 30th. A sneak peak video prepared by Rtr. Afrah Niyaz was shown to the members. With the completion of the last few finishing touches the website was up and running for the public from the 1st of November 2020.
