This little school, that has had no support from the Sri Lankan Education Dept., is situated in the more remote East of the Island. There are 3 teachers and 77 children, all coming from exceptionally poor homes. Part of our Christmas Appeal was for school bags, which we have made on the Island. We were able to take these with us as a surprise and, whilst there, were able to fund a water pump and pipes to bring water from their functioning well to an old tank that will be cleaned out (last used in 2004).
At the time of writing (December 2014) the tanks have now been cleaned out (for the first time since the tsunami) and are working again.
