As you can imagine, the village temple can no longer be supported by the villagers — they can’t support themselves.
But now the temple is also under pressure to feed villagers who are starving. So we have begun to support the temple so that they can help. Below, you can see Malinta giving dana to the two monks. ‘
1st Cycle – On 22nd July 2022, 19 dry ration bags were distributed to 19 families
As soon as we are able to, we plan to revive the dilapidated shed to be able to hold dharma classes for 100 children. We could use some help, so if this a project that interests you and you can support it, please drop us a note and some funds 😉
The Driver’s fee (LKR 3,500) and Vehicle Hiring Charges (LKR 7,000) were sponsored by Weeraratne family.
