Water & Top School Spots for Tea Plantation Kids (47226)
The work towards the building is progressing, but slowly.
Sri Lanka is in sporadic lock downs due to COVID.
The death tolls have risen, and there is an acute shortage of ventilators and the hospitals are overcrowding.
The procurement and distribution of vaccines by the government have been abysmal.
The majority of people have no access or been denied the second vaccine.
The schools have closed again. The COVID spike in India has gravely impacted Sri Lanka. Large numbers of people are infected in Sri Lanka (a daily high of over 2500 persons). This has impaired the progress of the work on St. Margaret School, especially travel by our representatives on the ground to supervise the work and developments.
However, the Principal of St. Margaret School, Mr. Ratnavale, requested and has re-submitted details of the building plans. There was a delay by the architect.
The Technical Officers have also visited the school and taken all the details. They have also measured the land on which the building will come up. The length and breadth of the building is to be altered a little, according to the Government specifications.
For two classrooms the extent of the land will be a litter bigger (not much).
The school and Mr. Ratnavale are now awaiting the necessary approved plans from the department.
The communication and work are closely monitored by Bishop Kumara Illangasinghe, who is OMNIA’S local agent and Director of Operations in Sri Lanka.
