Need Your Helping Hand


Lamasaree Project

e are hoping to organise a campaign to provide white dresses (lama sarees for girls & National dresses for boys) for children in a Dhamma school in a remote village off Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. We went there last month to distribute school books among these children. This campaign was organised by the teachers and the children of the Dhamma School in our temple which is an annual event.

There are about 250 children in this school and all of them are very poor. I felt very sorry when I saw the poor status of the dresses those children were wearing. All the children were wearing faded and torn dresses. This pathetic sight prompted me to think as to how something can be done for these children and finally I thought of starting a fund in order to provide them with white material for their dresses for next year.

The estimated cost of this project is SL Rs.250,000/=. Can you please consider setting aside a small amount every month for 10 months (January to October) so that you will be able to contribute a considerable sum by October this year without much burden on you. If not, you can contribute any amount in one installment as you wish. I will open a new bank a/c for this purpose ad let you know so that you can make your contributions in to this a/c as and when you are able to do so.

Please let me have your response early so that I can be sure that this project is feasible.

May the Triple Gem Bless You!!!
