SURIYA LAMAI PROJECTS

 

Meanwhile, if you or anyone you know would like to financially help Venerable

Bhikkhunī Visuddhi and/or her Suriya Lamai project for Sri Lanka, you are

warmly invited to check the donation page on our website, where you can find

all the available payment methods. 

 

Due to the lockdown restrictions, bhikkhunīs in Sri Lanka are not receiving

enough food and medicine. Senior bhikkhunīs from Sakyadhita ārāma have

been helping other monasteries with primary needs. Any extra help will be

greatly appreciated. 

 

SOS HELP SRI LANKA

 

We would like to thank you from the whole Karuṇā Sevena Society and Venerable Bhikkhunī Visuddhi for your generous donation to the affected families in Sri Lanka. We are very grateful for such an expression of care and support in this challenging time. We are happy to share common merits with you!

 

As many of you may already know, SOS Help for Sri Lanka is our latest project. The country has been facing great difficulties due to the latest COVID-19 outbreak. We are hoping to support as many families as possible and provide as many ventilators as we can to local hospitals. They are in urgent need of medical equipment and support. One ventilator has already been delivered to Peradeniya Hospital. Please find attached to this email the leaflet with all the details about the project for your consideration. 

 

You can find any updates and pictures regarding all the ongoing donations on our blog

 

HELP FROM SAKYADHITA ĀRĀMA

 

The project Suriya Lamai is also supporting a number of Sri Lankan bhikkhunīs,

along with local women and children. 

 

This is a hard period for everyone, including bhikkhunīs. They have received little or no support over the past year because of the COVID restrictions. This project would be able to provide some help to them as well as to the local communities.

 

The senior nuns from Sakyadhita ārāma, in the outskirt of Colombo, were lucky enough to receive the official authorization from the police to deliver donations despite the lockdown restrictions. And thanks to the generosity of donors, they were able to deliver over 50 packages of dry food for underprivileged families in the neighborhood and to provide food donations to 21 bhikkhunī ārāmas.
