For a Sri Lankan displaced family, returning home after living as refugees in India can be a struggle with very little possessions, no work or housing. This life-changing Gift for Peace will provide a temporary shelter, helping them find a place to belong as they return to their homeland and settle back into a safe, permanent future.

Life for families like Lesansa’s (pictured) has been tough. After fleeing the civil war in Sri Lanka, many families like Lesansa’s lived for years in a refugee camp in India. With the war now over, many are now making the return home.

Refugees making the return home face many challenges. Many families arrive with very little possessions and struggle to find work or housing.

Your life changing gift will provide a family in Sri Lanka with a temporary home - just like Lesansa¹ and her daughter Akeesha¹ (pictured) so they have a safe place to live and a roof over their head when they return to their homeland.

“After coming to Sri Lanka, we didn’t have a house of our own. Then, we received a temporary home...Because of this help we have been able to come here without having to depend on anyone else."
