Rev. J.A. Isha, head of the Martha Children’s Home said, “There are 32 children living in our home. We usually depend on donations from various well-wishers to feed our children. Because of the situation we do not receive them anymore and have many difficulties trying to find food for our children. We have not received any relief from any organization, so we are grateful to Nuwara Eliya DIRC for selecting us and for NPC and the Canadian donor for the dry food rations.”
NPC continues to support communities affected by Covid-19 with financial aid from the Canadian Government through the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI), Misereor and the European Union (EU). Through these efforts 3,516 low income families, 5,620 persons including persons with disabilities and special needs residing in orphanages and old people’s homes and 440 families from marginalised community groups including persons with disabilities and members of female-headed households have been supported up to April 30, 2020. These distributions are valued at Rs. 11,668,411.
