Founder’s Note

This has been an existing month for us. We were involved in numerous initiatives, ranging from helping pregnant mothers to providing basic necessities for a rural children’s home with differently abled children. We’ve raised funds from our monthly members, one-off contributors and from our Facebook fund raisers. Thank you everyone for being with us in our journey to Raise Sri Lanka

Helping Pregnant Mothers in Tissamaharama

Because you helped, we were able to help 16 Pregnant mothers with essentials to support their delivery. These mothers live in poverty conditions, and these essentials are mandated by the hospital and it costs Rs.10,000 to get the bare minimum essential to support pregnancy. With COVID conditions, families are struggling to eat a minimum of a meal a day. These mothers were delighted to receive the essential pack.
