Promise to Amalia

Trincomalee Preschool Project

In 2018, along with Child Action Lanka, we started supporting a remote post-war village community. This village, called Kumburapitiya, is located near Trincomalee, which is in the north east of Sri Lanka.

All families had lost loved ones, faced the trauma of war and continue to deal with the inevitable emotional, physical and financial aftermath of this conflict. Most families are currently surviving on one meal a day.

We helped set up a small preschool for up to 15 children. We donated  start-up goods such as white boards, chairs, first aid equipment, kitchen goods, cleaning equipment and much more. We provided 2 meals a day and also funded outings for the children. In 2018, we also celebrated Christmas with them, which was great fun!

Sadly in August 2019, Child Action Lanka closed this project. We were informed that the physical donations made by Promise to Amalia were passed on to a new playgroup in Killinochchi to a much needed community. We were informed that the stationery was given to the children and that they have been admitted to another existing local preschool with Child Action Lanka paying their fees.
