House for Somasiri and his Family

Our dearest monthly givers, together we did it. Somasiri and his family were living in a house built with clay, hoping for days without rain because the roof had holes. Somasiri is a daily wage earner, he tries his very best to get some form of food on the table for a family of five. A house for them was a dream which is now a dream come true. Together we were able to give Somasiri and his family hope, to keep dreaming and strive for a better future.

With the help from our volunteer, Udayanga for the execution and your generous monthly contribution we built a house within one month at a cost of Rs. 275000.

For Somasiri and his family you are the blessing sent from up above
