Sri Lanka 2019: Sunshine and Smiles

Today we were greeted by sunshine for our one-and-a-half hour scenic drive to our distribution. On arrival we were greeted by the local Rotarians, and the smiles of children and their parents. We were all adorned with garlands.

Eileen had her many friends in Newfoundland-Labrador sew/knit 1,700 finger puppets. They were handed out to the delighted children.

The Rotarians had the distribution site well prepared, and with their help and that of the Rotaract members, we had a smooth distribution. Tonight, 663 Sri Lankan children will have a better night's sleep, thanks to the generosity of our SCAW donors.
