Trustee Chairman Joy Palmer Cooper and Secretary David Cooper spent the month of January 2017 in Sri Lanka. They visited our project villages where community buildings had been established in previous years, some of our well villages and all of the children whose education we support. They declared open new wells at Veheregala and Manelgalla and visited families of Colombo flood victims the charity had assisted. They also visited the Centre for Handicapped in Kandy where we provide funds to artificial limbs for amputees.
Two further key aspects of their visit were a visit to Morawewa near Trincomalee where we will be supporting the provision of a water purification project (see the Trincomalee page of this website) and addressing the launch of our Oral Cancer Detection and Awareness Project being developed in partnership with the Rotary Club of Kandy (as detailed on the Peradeniya page of this website)
