THE STORY:

Last Year we helped build a new Classroom

NOW:  We really need your help to build a dormitory for the boys and construct an entranceway and hall at the Sri Jinananda Children’s Home.

 

Thanks,

 

Philip Roche,

Tim & Suki Harding

 

 

In 1986, Sri Jinananda Children’s Home of Colombo, Sri Lanka began as a wooden shed to provide shelter to destitute boys. It now has 70 children aged between 2 and 19.

 

The home does not receive any funding from Government or non-Government sources. The boys rely entirely on donations of food, clothes, essential supplies and cash contributions for survival.

 

All the boys go to school and are well looked after by Mrs. Chandrani Hettigoda (“The Orphanage Angel”) and her helpers. Good discipline combined with spiritual, extra curricular and leisure activities help these children in growing up into well-rounded citizens.

 

Each of the boys has a unique story. Many of these children come from broken homes where single mothers have become destitute. Some have lost one or both parents to disease, natural disasters or suicide. Others have parents who have been imprisoned for serious offences or become addicted to alcohol and illicit drugs. Since Sri Lanka has very limited social welfare support, homes such as Sri Jinananda help prevent these children from ending up on the streets.

 

Sri Jinananda Children’s Home accepts children only when either the police or local authorities have confirmed them as destitute. Every effort is made to keep children in touch with parents, siblings and other relatives.

 

For these children, The Sri Jinananda Children’s Development Center is home, the boys are their brothers and the staff and supporters are their family.

 

Become a friend and supporter of this very large and wonderful family!
