    Story

    I started a link with Sri Lanka when I was working at St John's College, Southsea. The De La Salle Brothers have schools in many poor areas of the world. I visited three times with students, we took donations such as sports equipment and stationary for the orphanage, we worked in the schools, we painted the dining hall in Boys Town, made friends and had some small understanding of what it is like to live in extreme poverty. I remember a small girl giving us a picture from a magazine, she had nothing else, her home was a one roomed brick building by the railway line.

    Your donations will go directly to the poor. I have paid for my flight and I will stay with the Brothers. Your money will be given to those who suffer from leprosy, it will buy rice and dry goods for poor families and it will support the work of the schools for poor children, buying them shoes, stationary and allowing them an education, to extricate themselves from poverty.

    On behalf of all the people you will be helping, thank you so much.

      Dear Supporters I have returned from Sri Lanka with wonderful memories and a hope to return next February. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of going to Sri Lanka to consider calling in to visit Brother Raj and the various schools or projects, you would be most welcome. You may wish to spend a morning with the pre-school children singing English songs, you may like to join in a discussion with older children, you may like to take part in a football or cricket game. I would encourage you to take the gift of yourself and enjoy.

      Dear Supporters, Thanks to your generosity, 50 needy families can have all the exercise books and school equipment that they cannot afford to buy for their child. Most families in Sri Lanka are poor, they try to earn enough to live each day. Next Saturday we are giving out dried food. I have uploaded some photos from my trip to this link here: https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjBdSpi You can see some very poor housing near where I'm staying, these houses are used by fishermen. Thank you for all your support and kindness, Jane

      Dear Supporters Thank you so much for your generosity, together we have raised an amazing £800. I would like you to know that an anonymous donor is going to match whatever the final amount comes to, great news indeed. I am leaving for Colombo on 1st February , I will take all your good wishes with me. I attach a photo from a Christmas Day lunch for the hungry. I will post more when I get there and become involved with the charitable work. Jane
