The Sri Lanka Slums

In the slums of Colombo people are in need.

Malcolm Perera introduced us to the slums in Colombo. We were impressed with how open people were for the Gospel but also with the brokenness and the need of help. We started to provide for food, books and rehab treatments for drug addicts. But we need you so we can do much more.

Feed the needy

Food and other basic needs are getting more expensive daily. We reach out by handing out ration packs to as many people as our budget allows.

Educate the poor

Education should be for everyone. By giving out books and other school material we try to keep the children educated.

Rehab the addicts

In these slums drug addiction is a big problem. By bringing drug addicts out of their environment, they can focus better on their rehabilitation. With the help of a Christian rehab center, drugs addicts are in a save environment and receive proper care to get rid of their addictions.

Frequently Asked Questions

All the money is spend on helping the people in the Sri Lankan slums. We provide ration packs, books, rehab uptake and operational costs such as travel expenses.

We aim for full transparency. So we try to make the spendings publicly available on this website in the near future.

The funds are administrated with our financial administrator. All expenses are registered as we are accountable to you.

We will provide some statistics and share the progress on this project page. 

As a team we offer our time and work free of charge. We do not pay any team member. To work with locals we do have to pay them for specific services. We try to keep our overhead as low as possible.

In the comments section you can share with us your thoughts. We would love to hear your thoughts and are open for new ideas.

Core values

We uphold Christian values

This means we reach out to the children and the poor and preach to them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All with prayer and while being led by the Holy Spirit in obedience of God. 

What have we accomplished so far?

Via blogposts and Instagram we try to keep you informed about the progress that has been made.

We have prayed for the Holy Spirit

People were open and hungry for the Gospel. We were able to pray for this  man to receive te Holy Spirit. He immediately gave up all his drugs. But still much has to be done.
