Treasurer of St Mary’s Boys Home
I am Antany Arulpragasam, Managing Personal of an Orphanage Home (St Mary’s Boys Home in Sri Lanka) which provides free education, foods, shelter and other basic needs. Since, we do not have sufficient fund to provide the reasonable foods for 60 children in our Orphanage Home, we borrowed a bank loan amount of US$19,000 from a private bank in Sri Lanka under my name pledging my job I do. I was managing our Orphanage Home full time until 2015 however, due to insufficient money to run our Home, I started working from last year.
This Orphanage Home is for children who have been affected by poverty and domestic civil war. We provide counselling for the children who have been badly affected in the domestic civil war which has destructed number of young children mentally and physically. Number of children have become orphans and lost their parents, guardians in the civil war. We experience much harder stories through affected children statement.
In order to provide better foods, education and psychological recovery events, we needed more money and we borrowed the amount of US$19,000 (in local currency LKR 2,900,000). I am spending my monthly salary from my job for Orphanage home and it is really difficult to have saving from my limited salary package to repay this borrowing. We wish to share the loan agreement personally if is required and we hesitate to publish in public forum since it is confidential document.
We kindly submit this request into your heart to find a generous way for us to help to pay back this borrowing and provide financial support to run our orphanage home. We manage this orphanage home as registered Charity and we expect more donors to fund for better life of our children.
Your every single dollar will provide meal or education to our poor children. We highly appreciate your generous heart.
God bless you all.
Thank you very much
