At the moment there are more than 8,000 children of deceased and disabled soldiers of the Sri Lankan armed forces who deserve assistance for their education.
Hence, apart from securing sponsors for the children, we are in the process of setting up a Two and a Half million rupee (Rs.2,500,000.00) fund with Sampath Bank in Sri Lanka which will send frequent payments to a number of most deserving children of soldiers deceased or disabled from last battles to liberate the North of Sri Lanka. This fund is totally managed by us.
Up to now, $9,500.00 (Rs.917,660.00) from funds raised by screening movies and family nights has been deposited in to this fund. This deposit sends payments of Rs.4,500.00 per quarter (since June’09) to 16 children of deceased and disabled war heroes. Some of these war heroes are still in hospitals receiving treatment.
In future, we hope to increase the fund to Rs.2,500,000.00 through our fund raising events.
