Dear friends and supporters,

We hope you and your families are staying well.

Covid-19 confirmed cases have been rising in Sri Lanka. Many poor families are testing positive, and must  strictly isolate at home for 14 days, making basic food supplies almost impossible to obtain. Schools were closed again from October to January and children are suffering from malnutrition without a vital school meal.

In response, and with help from the local police, our Country Director Mr Percy delivered nutritious dried food parcels, with vegetables, eggs, milk powder, rice, dhal, flour, sugar, soya meat, ayurvedic medicines, soaps and mixed seeds to 25 sick and vulnerable families, who have quarantine notices outside their homes, instead of opening TFT preschool as a food bank again, to limit the spread of the virus.

Two acres of crops have grown over the last few months which benefited 30 poorest families in the Southern province, and 19 TFT housemothers also participated in the planting and agricultural crop training.

Among the crops cultivated were eggplant, okra, spinach, papaya, bitter gourd, this spike, potato mayo. This is providing sustainability and valuable nutrition.

Thanks to the fantastic support we have received from our donors, a new season of planting is about to begin, and we will be providing a new livelihood programme to give poor families the tools and training they need for their future sustainability, which will include poultry farming, basket weaving and coir making.

Kind regards,

Joel

Dear friends and supporters,

I hope you and your families are keeping well during these tumultuous times.

Thanks to your donations, and the dedication and hard work of our Country Director Mr Percy, Galle police and local supporters we've provided a total 157,500 meals to vulnerable families in the Southern province, Kandy area and Mannar district.

Mr Percy has provided agricultural training to local villagers, TFT teachers and housemothers. They planted crops and seedlings of snake gourd, brinjal, ridge gourd, spinach, long beans, lime and ladies fingers on his land, in the kitchen garden at TFT International Preschool, and in the grounds at Ruhunu orphanage.

They’re now bearing fruits and vegetables and providing continued sustenance to families suffering severe hardship. We’ve never been more needed, and although our funds are at an all-time low, with the help of you, our fantastic supporters, we remain optimistic to keep children together in families, educated and out of orphanages for as long as we possibly can.

We are infinitely grateful to all our donors who have helped us continue to support these families, your continued support has never been so appreciated.

Kind regards,

Joel
