Build a house for Ruban & Radika

Build a house for Ruban & Radika

Why we need your help

adika grew up in a Children’s home and has no parents or close family members. After Ruban and Radika survived several years of personal hardship and grief that nearly tore their family apart, Ruben was able to open up his own shop. He has been working hard, and has finally earned enough money to buy a piece of land at the new Paalam Project Land site. For the past two years he has been saving and paying a small amount of money each month for the land. He recently completed his last payment (the total cost of the land is £1,500 with Lawyers’ fees, land duty, surveying plan fees, etc.).

Four months ago Radika and Ruben had a little girl, named Jessica. They are currently living in a very small, somewhat dilapidated rental house. They have to move out of this house within a year. Ruban does not earn enough to pay for the building of a family home. His monthly income is only enough to cover his family’s day to day needs. Their sons— Roshan, 7 years, and Dilaxshan, 9 years— both attend Paalam School, outside Jaffna, and are sponsored through The Dust Project.

£6,600 will provide a family in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, with the materials they need to build a house. Sponsored families will work alongside a local contractor to construct a basic home. They are also taught how to maintain their house to ensure sustainability.
