Help Irsath to pay tribute to his father and feed his family
Organized by: Hanna Weber
This summer I met Irsath from Sri Lanka. His father died in the Tsunami 2004. With 13 years he and his Twin Brother had to leave school and start working to feed their mom and a young girl who lost both of her parents. The only thing they've got left from their father is a small piece of Land in Arugam Bay close to the main point, directly at the beach. They got a lot of offers for this Land but Irsaths big dream is to make something good out of this place to pay tribute to his father. So he don't sell this land. At the moment Irsath works as a surf teacher. He works all day long to feed his family and save some Rupies for offseason to survive. But this is not enough to start a buisness on his fathers land. My wish is, to help Irsath fulfill his dream! He's a great guy with a big heart and I wished he could make his father proud. He should get the chance to start a buisness with wich he could live without worrying if his family will have enough money for the coming surf-off-season. Imagine there would be an ice cream parlor in Arugam Bay (There is none right now) or a surf shop. This is not just a great business for him but for all of us who will vistit this small amazing surftown.
I plaese you helping me to help him. We live such a good life...If we all just give a litte bit we could enrich his. Maybe you ask yourself: "Why him? There re so many people with the same or worse problems." I think the only chance to change the world is to start with small things and help single people who moved us. If we help one person, this world become a better place. Jesus himself did not healed all people in the world but the people he met. I met Irsath and his story touched my heart. Let's change his life together! Thank you for every dollar you give.
