Heartbreaking trip to Sri Lanka

  Two weeks ago I returned from Sri Lanka, were I had spend some time with our charity project Hashtag#stopstaringstartcaring for the 5th time.   Whenever I go there, I am a different person. I feel, act and even dream differently. Every time I see all the problems and poor boys and girls in our […]

Work in progress!

  We have improved our patience during the last 4 years of supporting the orphanage Meth Sewa in one of the poorest regions of Sri Lanka. According to German Gründlichkeit, nothing has seemed to work out since then.   But that is not true! We have achieved a lot and we are happy to show […]

Thank you, Mimecast!

  When we started our work in Sri Lanka, we were sure that we will have to face difficulties and would need a lot of patience. Our project is far. travelling there takes nearly 24 hours from door to door and the communication with the team of Meth Sewa is sagging.   But we never […]

Please stop the rain!

  The last months our construction site and the staff at Meth Sewa had to suffer from heavy rain. For that reason we still don’t know when “Pahan Tharuwa”, our new charity project in Sri Lanka, will be finished. The weather has currently caused a delay of half a year.   Another time factor is […]

It will be the new home for unwed expecting underaged mothers of the region around Wellawaya.   About 8 month had passed since our last visit. We already knew that the money planned for the […]

Patience and power of endurance

  As if our monthly bills for water and electricity of 250-300 Euros in Meth Sewa, Handapanagala, were not enough to violate our budget, a dozen of our kids got so sick, that they had to be moved to the hospital.   Due to their conditions, most of the kids are already fragile and weak. […]

SSSC builds the obligatory protecting wall

  Finally we have raised enough money (thanks a lot to every single contributor from all over the world) to build the protecting wall around the new mother & child home here in Handapanagala.   Already during our stay in April we had learned from the Meth Sewa Foundation that this is obligatory. The government […]

A new home for 30 girls – our first project for Meth Sewa

Half a year has passed since we have decided to fundraise money for supporthing the Meth Sewa Foundation. We never knew how much we could collect and to be honest during that time we sometimes felt unsure whether it would be enough for the various needs in Handapanagala, far away from the Sri Lankan tourism, […]

Every day life in Meth Sewa!

  Cihan has been staying at the Meth Sewa Orphanage for about two weeks now. He is planning and calculating all the details for the new home for 20 of the Meth Sewa kids. Originally we intended to build a bath house first. But this has become unessential since a big Ceylon insurance already made […]
