Northern MIOT Report 2017-18

Dr E Velauthapillai


It gives me huge pleasure in writing this report. Another fruitful year has gone by and a lot of progress has been made involving the projects of the Northern region. This was formally viewed by the entire committee of the MIOT when they visited the projects undertaken by the Northern region during their tour of Sri Lanka earlier this year.

Thilagawathiyarlllam – Kathiravely, Vaharai

 This is the main orphanage supported by the Northern region – which now has 44 orphaned girls. They all attend the 1.’) call school opposite the home and have extra classes in English, Math and Science at the home – paid for with extra funds. We seem to be falling victim of our own success as the admission of children to the orphanage is carried out by the courts of law and the Probation office. The children are also involved with sporting activities like athletics and netball. Please feel free to visit the orphanage and boost the morale of the children.

Vivel ananda Home for Girls, Valaichchenai

 This home is based in Valaichchenai in the Eastern province in Sri Lanka and has 35 orphaned children. The Northern MIOT funded a study hall which was built as brand new and was formally opened by the President of MIOT in Jan this year in a very colorful ceremony

Hari Children’s Home, Kallady, Batticaloa

 This boy’s home is based in central Batticaloa and houses 55 orphaned boys. They are given extra help in the subjects of Math, Science and English after school and are ·all brought up in a very disciplined way. Mental health and relaxation classes in the Northern Province are conducted in schools and elders’ homes as in previous years
