Thunder overnight and heavy rains as we drove to our site
made the team wonder what challenges the day might bring. Our Rotary partners
feared the conditions may prevent some children from reaching the distribution
site and receiving their precious gift. Our concerns were put to rest as we
entered a large, sparsely lit auditorium filled with excited Sri Lankan
children. The bedkits were stacked in rows, as their future beneficiaries
lined up to be fitted with their new school shoes before their photo was
taken. 700 more children will have a better night’s sleep.
