Domestic Wells and Agriculture Well
In 2016, we commenced a wells project called the “Living Springs Project” in Mullivaikal in the North East of Sri Lanka. This is one of the places affected by the internal war. There is a dire need for clean water for inhabitants of this region. In 2016-2022, we have completed several domestic wells in Mullivaikal and surrounding areas. An incomplete large well has also been completed in Oddisuttan with our contribution. This well is being used by three families for large scale agriculture.
Now these families are able to access clean water to meet their daily necessities. Some enterprising families have also started their own vegetable gardens and planted fruit trees and coconut trees in their compounds as they now have access to water to cultivate their crops.
Domestic Well Agriculture Well
In 2019 we built our first Community well in Sudhanthirapuram in the North of Sri Lanka. It is a 100ft deep tube well. This area suffers a number of months of drought each year and water is scarce during this time. In association with another sponsor, we have completed this Community Well project which will provide those in the Community with access to clean water throughout the year.
In 2020 we built another 75ft deep tube well to provide water for a widows colony in Murasumoddai which is situated in the Mulaithivu district. Work on two more Community wells in Sambukulam (near Puthukudiyrpu) and Parisangkulam (near Oddisuttan) are now complete and all four community wells are functioning well. Work is underway on the fifth Community well for a Daycare centre in Visuvamaddu.

Our aim is to provide domestic and community wells to as many families and communities with the most need such as the disabled and the widows. We believe that everyone needs to have access to clean water as this is the basic necessity for all.
The gift of clean water is a ‘miracle’ many desperately need all around the world. Together we are being part of this ‘Miracle’ for those in need.
Tea Estate Toilet Project
Sri Lanka is home to many breath-taking sites among which are the tea plantations where the renowned ‘Çeylon Tea’ is grown. There are close to a million tea estate workers working tirelessly and in challenging conditions to harvest tea leaves. These workers live in one roomed houses/family called Line houses. Many families don’t have proper sanitation facilities.
We have recently commenced on a toilet project for some families in a hill country tea estate close to Bandarawale in the highlands of Sri Lanka. Three toilets for three families have been completed to date.
Solar Powered Water Project
In August of 2022 we completed a Solar powered water project for a Boy’s Home (Orphanage) in Killinochi in the North of Sri Lanka.
The water pump is powered by Solar power instead of electricity and the water is being used for market gardening and for daily domestic needs of the Boy’s Home.
English Tuition – (2017 – 2021)
From 2017 -2021, we have also sponsored English tuition to underprivileged children in Mullivailkal East in order to give them better prospects for their future. These children have had an opportunity to get extra help with learning English which will also help them to be computer literate and open up better job opportunities when they finish their education.
Daily Feeding Programme – ( 2017- 2019)
From 2017 -2019, we sponsored a feeding programme for the disabled children in a special school in Puthukudiyirpu, in the North of Sri Lanka.
Working with In-Country Partners
We are working with a charity based in Sri Lanka to achieve our goals in being part of rebuilding lives and bringing hope and happiness to the needy and the underprivileged.
