Sri Lanka 2013 mei/juni ( English)
With a good feeling we left Belgium on Monday 27 May.Direction Zaventem airport. From the moment I close the front door behind me I have one thought ….. direction East.
After 2 perfect flights we arrive in the morning, and as always we call our first friends.
The same afternoon we went to an orphanage for girls in Balapitiya. We meet a Dutch girl who was there for 2 months. I have huge respect for her. After consultation, we decided to buy dry food. This is always the best because perishable things is not advisable.
Everything is officia.. As you see can see I put a signature under the amounts we have spent.
When we leave the girls sing a beautiful song. Tx girls.
FURTHER IN THAT WEEK
We went to our friends from previous projects we give them a basic food package. Is a sign of We are still thinking of you.
The orphanage for boys in Balapitiya.
The same smiles.
And the lady who runs the orphanage was in need of a blender. We purchased a solid one not that plastic stuff. Every morning, she makes a vitamin-rich juice for the kids.
We walk in Aluthgama and there comes a lady and a man in a wheelchair. We know them We met already a lot of times. Etienne with his white hair attracts the attention I think. Anyway we buy that man and his wify as always a food package.And then he pointed to his tyres. As slick as an eel.
Okay we buy new bicycle tires. And see his face..
Last time we made a toilet. Still as clean as day one. Tx Teachers.!!Now for each child a backpack with writing materials, notebooks etc. Samanlal has helped us for 43 kids we have to buy so he managed to make it a bit cheaper. (TxSamanlal)
This is one of my favorite photos. It gives a lot of fun.
And for the rest we are ON HOLD ( Due to extreme bad weather)
A kitchenette for the widow ..we are going to build as the weather permits.It is extremely bad at the moment.So we better take no risk that cement becomes concrete before it’s out of the bag. Everything is paid and is on call.Suresh and his men are ready.
My lady friend Chamaree has the last project in her hands now. (Mount Lavinia) a refrigerator for the mothers with kids (care) (had no fridge you can imagine with babies )
And for the the children with Down (Mount Lavinia) we bought paint, brushes and canvas. They have a project they sell paintings made by them. This is a fantastic project. They paint and i may hope they can sell some.
We thank everyone who has helped us in anyway to allow us to do this.
Etienne and Marij van Goethem.
To be continued I will post also abt the tourist feelings we had.
