Support for Sri Lankan Youth post-Tsunami - Carpentry Tools for Rohana (Completed)

Rohana is a deaf young man whose line of work is carpentry. Since he lost all of his equipment in the tsunami, he is seeking help to buy a set of carpentry tools. The whole set that would help him to provide for himself and his family again, would cost about US $700 including a multi-purpose saw machine. Your support is highly appreciated!

Orphanage Rating System, Sri Lanka (Completed)

Seeing the poverty and sad conditions of the overwhelming majority of Sri Lanka's orphanages, we envisioned that there might be a possibility to work on elevating the situation of all orphanages in Sri Lanka. We decided to design an evaluation system to decide where help is needed the most.

Sylvia Hoebig of Real Medicine Asia in Sri Lanka, who had organized a large-scale disaster aid operation pursuant to the tsunami, has an overview over many orphanages in existence in Sri Lanka. She created the following Orphanages Rating System.

Model Village, Sri Lanka (Completed)

Our vision is to rebuild good, stable, and environmentally friendly houses and/or small villages in three (3) specifically focused areas to be distributed to the really needy people (e.g., there could be a family who has lost a house only and a family who has lost the house and the salary earner. Help should go to the latter.) Regarding different races and religions in those areas, our goal is bringing together the people.

Long Term Medical Support and Growth Hormone Treatment for Children, Tangalle, Sri Lanka

In 2005 shortly after the tsunami, Dr. Martina Fuchs, met Madumekala, an adolescent girl suffering from panhypopituitarism. At age 11, Madu was the height of a three year old. In an unsupported gesture of compassion, Dr. Fuchs chose to fund Madu's treatment for growth hormone therapy through Ruhuna Medical College.

Physical Therapy Enhancement Training (Completed)

Now in its fourth year this program continues to take on a life of its own. Our intention was to implement two trainings for therapists at Navajeevana and the surrounding communities, but the massive facilities expansion at Navajeevana and the staff now working six days a week to meet the ever increasing demands made it difficult for us to carry out group instructions and interphase with their clinic operations. Our planned activities had to be postponed until next year.
