Next construction project in full action

(Please, see pictures in German version.) Although there is not always someone from Neuwied-Matara Friendship Association on site in Matara, contacts and electronic-digital aids via email and what’s app are really good now and helpful when planning, negotiating and checking from Germany, what is going on or not. But if the first chairman spends part of his vacation near Matara – as he is doing at the moment – he is thoroughly looking after all kind of processes at school and the construction projects under work, which is a great advantage. The construction of the house for the five girls and their father, who lost their mother and wife by electric shock, and almost all of their accommodation, is in good progress. The roof has just been applied, interior plastering is being done and electricity work almost finished. There are many more little bits and pieces to be accomplished inside and outside, and windows and doors are currently being installed.

It’s just a drop in the ocean; and, of course, we cannot build houses for all those who need one. To carry out such projects, it takes lots of efforts, fundraising, advertising campaigns and tireless petitioning and begging for the money to be collected. There is huge joy and gratitude when we can bring to an end such a project and when we can accommodate the family that has been suffering from a heavy blow of fate, in a decent dwelling. We would like to thank all donors in the father’s and children’s names and hope for a few more donations to offer some furniture.
