Project Report | May 6, 2024
Thank you and a status update

Dear Donors,

Finally, we commenced on building a house for a very poor family in Gothamigama, Kataragama (over 250 km down-south from Colombo, in Monaragala District, Uva Province).

Project Team members visited the location and met the beneficiaries before consenting to go ahead with the construction.

Its a family of 4 - Husband and Wife and two sons, the eldest is 12 years old and the youngest is 3 years old.

The breadwinner of the family is the husband and he is a labourer. The wife is unable to work because of the children being small. She stays at home and looks after the children.

The 12 year old son has met with an accident a couple of years ago and is awaiting an operation to repair the skull (reconstruction). The operation is scheduled in September 2024.

The medical condition of the son and the economic challenges they face have prevented the family from constructing a decent house to live. They live in a one-bedroom mud hut with aluminum sheets placed on the roof. When it rains, they suffer from rainwater pouring inside the house from the damaged roof. The kitchen and the dinning area and also the floor is also made out of clay.

Considering the abject conditions they are living, the Tarana Housing Committee decided to support the family by constructing a house, and its our first construction from the funds you have donated.

We attach herewith some of the photographs of the house they live in and also the construction status as of now. The construction commenced on the 22nd of April 2024.

Construction of the house will cost us LKR. 2.5 million (USD 8,800)

Our collection so far is LKR. 1.3 million (USD 4,500). We are currently short of LKR 1.2 million (USD 4,300) to complete the house.

Appreciate your assistance in any way to help support the shortfall of LKR 1.2 million (USD 4,300) in order to complete the house as soon as possible, so that we help the family to move and have a decent living. 

We appreciate your kind support to spread the word amongst your colleagues, relatives, friends, etc., in order to achieve our target.

Thank you for your support given to us. We appreciate it very much.

May you and your family be blessed abundantly!

Best Regards

Suranjani Wickremeratne
