This Home was previously managed by another party and was handed over to the Department of Probation and Child Care Services since they lacked resources. On a request made by the Department’s regional office to the Sri Bodhiraja Foundation, although it was a difficult task Ven. Dr. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero unhesitatingly agreed to undertake the management of the Home, preventing these innocent girls from being relocated to various orphanages island-wide.
At present we are in the process of managing arrangements for the Home. We realize that it is urgently required to refurbish the home to upgrade it to an acceptable state to provide better living standard for the children. We are also in need of donors to contribute and support toward the daily costs of meals and other running expenses.
This is the only home in the Eastern Province in Sri Lanka available for orphan children with a Sinhalese cultural background, while there are 52 homes in the province managed and available for orphaned children from other ethnic backgrounds.
