Last month we started work of building new house for poor family in Tissamaharama. Two children in that family. They are 9 years & 3 ½ years of age. Little one having nerves problem due to germ damaged his brain. So he can’t talk, move or doing anything. Elder son also having eye problem & he is under medical treatment. In this situation father also don’t have any fixed income & unable to do job because of his ill child. Until last month they live in under temporary tent cover. That is not suitable for family & specially little ill child. Finally we can complete the work less than one month. Then we went to handover the house to them on July 5th.
I started my trip on 4th July night. I got the Kataragama bus & it leaves at 10.00 p.m. I reached to Kataragama around 4.00 a.m. First I went to Keri Vehera & Kataragama Devalaya. After that I came to Tissamaramaya Temple. After that I went to see “Sandagiriya Dageba” & ruins. Nearly 1 hour I spent there & next I went to “Kirinda Temple” After that I came back to Tissamaharama town & I went to see “Ruins of Silapassa Pirivena” It situated near the Tissa – Kirinda road. After that I took the three wheel to see “Yatala Viharaya” ,”Galkanumandiya Ruins” , “Ethabendigala” & Debarawewa Menik Vehera”. After visiting above places I went to see above mentioned family & their new house. They were very happy about their new home. I gave them some food items & stationery items. Elder son wrote a note & he handover it to me. It was the most valuable gift he can gave to me. You can also view that gift when you go throw the pictures. I spent couple of hours with them & came back with heavy happy memories.
