Awaiting to start constructing our first house for a needy family
Firstly let me thank you for your generouse donation to support housing for the less fortunate in Sri Lanka.
The grave economic and financial crisis that our country has been facing for over a couple of years has resulted in extreme price increases in building materials and labour costs. Currently, the economy is getting stabilised and hence, we are expecting the construction material prices to reduce as a result.
So we hope to commence on our project no sooner we collect adequate funds to construct our first house to support a less-fortunate family in the North-Central Province.
We have received LKR 900,000 approx. on GG for this project. Our budgeted cost for a house has increased to around LKR 3 million approx.
We have a shortfall of USD 7,000 approx. to support build one house as of the current prices in material and labour.
We hope we may be able to collect further funds during the next couple of months and to start our construction soon.
With your support and many other probabale donors who wish to support us on this endeavour, we will meet our target funding requirements soon.
The next campaign on GlobalGiving will be the Giving Tuesday Campaign which will happen on the 28th of November (00:00:00 EST to 23:59:59 EST) on the GlobalGiving Platform.
