The village of Arthapilavu is a remote village in the North of Sri Lanka. It consists of 75+ families. After this community was resettled subsequent to the war, its school-going children were provided with three-wheeler services to transport them to and from their school. This service was funded by a UK based trust called ‘Bridge of Love,’ and was coordinated by the Center of Hope in Kaiveli.
In addition to this, a trustee of Bridge of Love made a generous donation on 24 October 2017, in memory of her late husband, enabling us to hire a second three-wheeler to further improve the transport service to and from the children’s school, provide dry ration packs to 115 widows in the area, and provide cash gifts to five villagers who were disabled during the war.
We know that each of the gifts provided came as a great encouragement and strength to the recipients and their families.
