Helping Glennie's Home Orphanage in former war torn Trincomalee‏

07 Jun 2015 By Edwards Foundation

Glennie Home Trincomalee was started by Rev. Fr. Leo in 1992 has about 18 orphan children both boys and girls which has now grown to over 50. They are between the ages 5 and 18. Rev. Sister Adriane and a team of volunteer workers help Fr. Leo to run the administration of the house.

These children need not only formal education during their formative years but they should also be prepared to face challenges of their future life as adults. This means that they needed a Vocational Training Centre for these children to lift up their lives.

The Centre is equipped with a computer, three typewriters and three sewing machines. It is now for use not only for the children at the orphanage but also for poor youth in the area willing uplift their living standards.

We visited the home and provided them provisions, and furniture. We also assisted them with a new wing to the existing building, which has greatly improved the lives of the Children.
