Dear Sponsor, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Sharonsundar and I have been the Interim Program Implementation Director of Sri Lanka office for the last 12 months. I have two children (a seven-year-old daughter and a five-year-old son) and I live in the capital city of Sri Lanka. I love sports and I used to play basketball during my college days.open_in_new Read full letter
Sujani and Nidursha are part of Compassion’s local Child Sponsorship Program, which started in June 2014. They’re inseparable; virtually sisters. Together with 70 other children from the neighbourhood, they attend daily classes, where they are taught tutored in subjects like English and mathematics; these lessons help the children to do better in their school work as well.open_in_new Read more
