Baransuriya Home

100_3479Baransuriya Home for the Children is a Buddhist Boys Orphanage which was started in 1971. While backpacking throughout Sri Lanka in March of 2012, we did some research and stumbled upon this orphanage in Hikkaduwa. We met the house mother named, Krisantha, who has worked and lived in the house since 2003. We spent some time there playing with the children and getting to know them. We learned that this small community located on the eastern coast tries to help one another as much as possible. The community comes together and signs up to cook either lunch or dinner for theses young boys. Although their neighbors may not have much, they still try their best to make sure these children have food on their plates by taking turns and sharing this duty. They try to fill as many slots as possible, but sometimes they are in need of help. Because of your donations, Love Thy Neighbor International was able to bless them with much needed necessities such as food, mosquito nets, gas for cooking, electric bill, personal hygiene items, socks, toys, and more. We’ve made the decision to continue supporting them by sending a donation from here on out every month. If you would like to donate a fruit tree or help us start a vegetable garden please email us and let us know. We can send you further information and details about this upcoming project.
