Project Volunteer Sri Lanka – News Flash

Really exciting news! We have just received our summer challenge, and this year we have been asked to renovate and decorate a ‘safe house’ in which several generations of disabled Sri Lankans, rejected by their families, are looking after one another in really primitive conditions. The oldest residents are in their 70s; the youngest are recently abandoned children. Part of the house was damaged in the Tsunami (when 50 of the inhabitants were drowned) and it has never been repaired. We are going to try and raise enough to clear and renovate this building as well as provide washing facilities and toilets (in place of the buckets and hole in the ground). Please help us by supporting the ball, donating prizes or encouraging someone to sponsor part of the evening.
