This was our major project of 2020. We helped create a Computer Centre and Computer and Language Training at the Carmel Academy. The Apostolic Carmel Academy is a Teaching Facility for young girls created by the Convent of Our lady of Lanka in Acthuvely (near Jaffna in the North of Sri Lanka). They asked for our help to create this facility. We made three donations totalling £3,428:
Matala Council has 10 Montessori Schools with 300 children educated free of charge. These schools were closed due to COVID. They requested educational material to enable these disadvantaged children to study and do work at home. Each child's pack was LKR 1,000 (about £4) and include a book, a scrapbook, a binder, scissors, pencils, a ruler, an eraser, and other small items.
We provide money to buy food for St Michael's children's hostel in Batticaloa. Due to COVID, their financial need became acute, and one of our Sri Lanka supporters approached us to see if we could help. We gave them money to buy food for a month for all the children in the hostel. Our contribution was £151
