Tsunami Disaster In Sri Lanka

Shelter for Orphaned Girls    

In these war torn times, where men and women fight and kill each other in the name of religion, land, wealth, or just because they do not like each other, the children of our present times are the losers. We had an opportunity to visit a place where the Methodist Church of that land organized and have been providing shelter for orphaned girls affected by the civil war and kids who were abused by their parents. The shelter called Christa Illam was formed in 1900 and is being run with skeletal funds. Christa Illam is located in a small village called Kalmuni in Sri Lanka. Christa Illam not only provides shelter for these children but has also been providing food, clothing and schooling.

The Christa Illam complex contains three main buildings: Anantha Vasa, Jothy Vasa and Karunai Vasa. All three buildings are in need of major renovations to the roof, walls and floor. Above all, all three buildings lacked adequate bathing and toilet facilities for these children.

A short visit and an extended examination of Christa Illam and its purpose and type of fellowship services that are being provided by the director Rev. Thayaseelan and all the dedicated staff, prompted GSWI, LLC to sponsor adequate funds for the rehabilitation of the Christa Illam complexes.

Anantha Vasa is a 1240 sf complex that houses 40 children. In addition to renovating the roof, walls and floor, a 300 sf combination bathing and toilet facility is being added to this building.

Jothy Vasa is a 465 sf complex that houses 14 children. In addition to renovating the roof, walls and floor, a 55 sf combination bathing and toilet facility is being added to this building.

Karunai Vasa is a 1640 sf complex that houses 64 children. In addition to renovating the roof, walls and floor, a 370 sf combination bathing and toilet facility is being added to this building.

Our many thanks to Rev. Dr. Albert W. Jebanesan of the Theological College of Lanka for making the connection between gswi and Christa Illam to make this unique and important project possible.
