As you are most certainly aware for some we years we have been supporting the Jayanthi Orphanage for boys in Kalutara, Sri Lanka.
Following on from the reconstruction of the orphanage and the establishment of a successfull co-operation with the AGIO school, the boys are now guaranteed a safe and hygenic enviroment and education.
Just when we thought we had everything under control the COVID 19 virus has brought us back down to earth. The Orphanage is for the most part dependant on donations for food and medicines. The meagre contribution made by the local government is simply insufficient to put food on the table on a daily basis.
The Foundation Kalapuwa has been forced to put all the current projects “on hold”, but allowing 50 orphaned boys to virtually starve is something we are not prepared to tolerate.
This explains our plea from the heart.
For 50 Euro per day the Orphanage can put 3 basic meals daily on the table for the children.
We do not give money to the Orphanage but arrange the purchase and supply of the relevant foodstufs (see photo above) and in this way ensure that every Euro is well spent.
Will you help us? Even the smallest contribution will really make a difference.
