Report from Rev. Jeyanesan August 2008

My dear Trevor,

Greetings from St. Johns Center CACM, Batticaloa

I am very happy to inform you that this morning the treasurer Lions Club of Batticaloa handed over us a cheque for Rs. 430565/=. Here with I am enclosing the official receipt (scanned copy) for the same.

I take this opportunity to thank you and the Lions Club of Shrewsbury.

We have asked our official auditors to give us a separate audited statement for the money we received from you in the year 2007. I am sure we will receive the statement this week. As soon as we receive it we will forward the same to you.

Here with I am enclosing some pictures of the Day Care/nutritional feeding Center Kiran. Last week they had their annual sports meet and parents and community get together. At present we have 74 children. We do provide breakfast and lunch. Periodical medical test are conducted by our medical team.We also give the children nutrition’s and vitamins. Earlier they have detected vitamin “D” deficiency among few children. We are happy that has improved satisfactorily after treatment.

I am sure you are aware the army offensive in Vanni area. At present there are about 200,000 IDP’s staying under very hard conditions. We are doing our very best to support at least few of them with emergency food and medicine. (Please see latest appeal)

I am also attaching a copy of the acknowledgement given to Lions Club Batticaloa

Thank you and your club for your continuous tireless support.

May God bless you, bless your family and bless your Lions Club

Thank you

Yours very sincerely
