The General Council unanimously decided that our priority is to help the Internally Displaced People (IDP’s). Funding has been mainly prioritised to help the orphans housed in schools and orphanages, and medical in the Vanni district
Due to the war many of our past beneficiaries themselves are displaced. We are in the process of contacting many of our past beneficiaries directly in Sri Lanka with a view to understanding their current needs and how we may support their current projects. . This will see us effectively directing our resources at the most urgently needed areas in the North and East affected by the war.
This year also saw the first funding from our Scholarship Fund, set up a couple of years ago. This funding is mainly to help the educational needs of the members of the Tamil community from all three religious backgrounds. An Investment Trust is now in place to invest approximately £15,000 in a fund to generate continuous income supporting this project in the coming years.
