Hospital Sanitary Care Project
A rural hospital in Sri Lanka (Dompe Hospital) is in need of toilets, and shower facilities. These facilities are old, broken, unsanitary, and unusable. When asked from the hospital what they need; to our surprise this was their request, a very basic need. This project will cost about US $4000.
Work on the toilets started on 12/11/18 and sheduled to comeplete by end of January 2019. Here are few construction pictures.
We are planning to install solar panels in Palpita school in Sri Lanka to provide the school's energy requirements. This will be one of the first schools on the island using alternate energy sources. In a tropical country the use of solar panels can be one of the solutions for the increasing energy demand in the country. The project will start in summer 2018. We will update you with more information soon.

Vision care - Project Completed summer 2018
A free eye clinic and distribution of eye glasses was held on the August 2nd 2018 in a village (Pugoda) in Sri Lanka. Eye care is expensive in Sri Lanka and primarily seniors and children go without proper eye care thus reducing quality of life and productivity.
Thank you to all of you who donated eye glasses and your time to clean and pack the eye glasses. The clinic was a full day event and three opticians donated their time and worked the entire day. Many other volunteers halp through out the day.
Here are some pictures of Hiruni's friends coming together to clean and package the eye glasses before they were taken to Sri Lanka. Thank you!!!
