Poonagala Refugee Camp

Dear Friends

We would just like to share with you a small story…
On the 29th October 2014, in Koslanda Sri Lanka… at around 0730 hrs am… a massive landslide occurred taking with it over 200 lives…

 

Many of those who lost their lives were very young parents, who’s little kids had already left for school earlier that morning, prior to the landslide taking place.
So when the children reached home after school, it was to find their homes… and their parents – no more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

68 of these children are now living in a re-conditioned un-used tea factory in Poonagala…
On the 24th January 2015, 3 of our Columbus Staff, namely Sudath, Nirmal and Champika, visited these children…

And in the pictures link below, you will see these children receiving educational gifts, in memory of Ada and Maurice Jordan.
