Vikram’s Story

Vikram lives in a rural area of Sri Lanka, with his wife and 3 children.

He was working at a barber shop in town, which was a long commute to work from home, mainly by foot.

After developing a severe infection in his leg, travelling this distance became difficult and he was forced to give up work. The family struggled to survive on the small unsteady income brought home by his wife who works as a casual labourer.


We donated the equipment needed to open a small barber shop where Vikram lives.
He is now able to utilise his skills to generate an income, whilst providing a much needed service for the locals in this rural area. We feel this project made a real difference to the whole community! A big thank you to our donors for making this project possible!
