URGENT FUNDRAISING APPEAL: KOBBEKADUWA TRUST: BUILDING HOUSES FOR DISABLED RANAVIRU AND FAMILIES

The Kobbekaduwa Trust, founded over 30 years ago, helps to build houses (with disability access) for Ranaviru and their families. Support is prioritised for those most affected, for example, left both physically disabled and blinded by terrorist attacks.  

To date, the Trust has built nearly 96 houses, and provided over 600 artificial limbs, many wheelchairs and crutches, specialised toilets, water schemes, and water pumps to Ranaviru families in rural villages. It has also supported many medical requests, for example, major heart and kidney operations. It has also helped more than 1,500 ranaviru finish their homes, in addition to the 96 homes mentioned above. 

The funding for this work has been severely impacted by covid. Your urgent generosity would be greatly appreciated to help the Trust continue its work. The current cost of building a house is approximately Rs. 1,600,000. Any amount is appreciated and will be an enormous help. The Trust can easily combine even small individual donations to support the cost of building a house.

Donations can be made via internet banking. The account details of the Trust are as follows

Name: Lt Gen Denzil Kobbekaduwa Trust.Rosmead Place, Colombo 7, Sri Lanka

No.: 005020011483. Hatton National Bank-Branch: Green Path 

SWIFT BIC: HBLILKLX 

Please inform of your donation to the Trust directly by emailing  to lali.kobbekaduwa@ymail.com with a copy to roshkobbe@icloud.com  (+94112693036) so that the Trust can issue you a receipt. The progress and financial accountability for donations (including photos of the handing over ceremony of completed houses to recipients) will be provided to you directly by the Trust as per its established processes.
