A Hectic Trip to England by Anton Karunakaran (aka - PSK)

Whenever my wife, Liza, arranges me to chaperon my daughters on a trip, I gleefully accept it in the hope of playing golf while my daughters attend to their business. However, my hopes were dashed this time as the weather in England turned distinctly cold despite the global warming, much debated in Copenhagen.> > > MORE

Support for JAHP Project - an Appeal to All

Sri Lanka has suffered from almost three decades of civil war caused by ethnic tensions. Out of a population of around 19.2 million, approximately 83,000 individuals in Sri Lanka were registered blind in 1984, scattered across its 9 provinces.
Whereas the blind and the vision impaired among the major ethnic community in the Southern and Western provinces are served by the Sri Lanka Council for the Blind those in the minority dominated areas of North and East were almost completely neglected and allowed to fend for themselves.

An Appeal from the President: "Sponsor A Child at Christu Illam"

Dear Friends,

This is a personal appeal to each and every one of you, who I believe are caring people who will want to help the orphaned children from the IDP camps.

Our College has been providing excellent education for more than 125 years, consistently producing many very eminent world citizens. In 1990, its main building was damaged badly by aerial bombing and all its students had to be moved out to nearby villages. Years later, repairs were carried out to the damaged buildings funded by a German Charity but the students' return was very slow. In 2005, when my wife and I visited the College, it was a shadow of its wonderful past, educating a small number of children with skeletal staff and basic facilities.
