Web appeal for Oru Paanai

Dear Friend

Your help is needed urgently

  • Hunger and malnourishment in North East are real.
  • Other areas in Sri Lanka are also similarly affected.
  • Principals of rural colleges and schools have reported that children attend school without breakfast. Some of the older children even faint during the day due to hunger.

What can we do? What can you do to help?

You can help by helping us to supplement the resources given by the World Food Programme to ensure that all the children are given a nutritious and palatable mid day meal during the school day.

You can make a significant difference.

Every pound you give will supplement the cost of feeding mid day lunch to 100 children.

We are currently helping to feed 33,000 children from 311 of the poorest schools.

The schools are from Vavuniya north, Killinochchi Jaffna and Vavunathivu in the Eastern Province. Many more schools have asked for our help. We will have to redouble our efforts. Much more work has to be done. We need your help to achieve our targets

You may wish to donate in memory of a beloved relative or friend or as a token of goodwill or give regularly by a standing order. Whatever you give will be gratefully received.

Please give not because of a perceived pressure from the person who handed this you, but because you cannot help but respond to the weight of responsibility you feel to share the contents of your paanai with the less fortunate.

Please make your cheque payable to “Oru Paanai” and post to the Treasurer at the above address or by Standing Order – Barclays Bank sort code 20-82-70, account 53279685. This could be done by yourself electronically or else please complete the S/O form and return it to us (address details on this page) and we will forward it onto your bank

We expect to spread this work to other needy areas in Sri Lanka in due course.

We will be pleased to receive your e-mail address to enable us to give you regular feed back.

If you have any questions, please do speak to one of us.

Thank you



Dan Muthuveloe and S.V. Devendra
