International Children's Care - Sri Lanka

Nestled away in the scenic village of Mailapitiya (24 km south of Kandy, Sri Lanka) is a wonderful non-profit, non-government organisation called ICC (International Children's Care).

Going by the motto of "Caring...as your own", ICC SL provides a home for orphaned/ destitute children over the age of 6 years. The Home provides children with good education, vocational skills, character building and life skills; helping them lead their lives as responsible, self-sufficient future citizens.

"What's most heart-rending, is the sincere gratefulness the children display for having a roof over their heads and food to eat… They need a great deal of support and have no idea where it will come from."

If you're keen on sponsoring a child, making donations, volunteering, or if you just want to find out more about ICC SL, feel free to write to Brian/ Prabhook/ Manesh/ Dawn at iccsl@bellmail.lk
