It was on October 23 last year that we first met Biso Menika and her daughter. They did not have a proper house to live in or a stable source of income to survive.
Before the lapse of 48 hours, through Gammadda, we took the first step to build a roof above her head.
A little over two months later, we made her dream, a reality.
The auspicious time was filled with smiles as Biso Menika and her daughter were escorted to their new home today.
Many of those who invoked their blessings on the second phase of the Gammadda 100 Days Movement joined hands with us at this important occasion.
Biso Menika took her first step into her new home amidst the chanting of pirith by the Maha Sangha led by the Chief Incumbent of the Sinhapura Gemunu viharaya – Venerable Mahanuwara Vichithralankara Thero.
Mr. Adrian Basnayake made a financial donation of one million rupees for the construction of this house.
Chairman of M.S.R Solar, Jiham Rameed donated a solar panel for the house. In addition, an allowance will be provided for a period of one year for other requirements at Biso Menika’s home through financial aid from Jerry Jayasinghe.
Padmashili Shanthilatha of the Sri Lanka Mahawela Authority, Grama Niladari Officer of the Sinhapura 286 Jurisdiction Upul Vitharana and Welikanda Divisional Secretary Harsha Bandara also contributed towards this cause.
