We visited this lovely orphanage again this year and a new housekeeper had just arrived for the boys with no idea what to do! Many of the older boys had left with some younger ones to replace them. We explained to the new housekeeper that we help most years as asked the boys what they would like. They all asked for new shirts. The girls thought it would be great to buy them football kits, so we used our tried and trusted method for measurements by lining them up from big to small to judge sizes – foolproof!
The girls left straight for Galle to the shops, with their personal shopper, Nimal the Tuk-Tuk driver in tow and bought new kit and flip flops. Sadly on our return to present the 15 rucksack sets with books and football kits there were 2 new additions to the orphanage, so back off to Galle for another 2 kits! It was fantastic to see the boys again, they are such a joy!
