Left to right: Kumarega, Dayajegan, Kaneshor, Peremika, Yadushan.
Kumarega (16 yrs) had excellent O'Level results, but cannot continue studies.
This family in Delft have land on which the father cultivates brinjal (aubergines), but it brings barely enough to survive the year. Their daughter Kumarega wishes to continue two years more study, but this would involve attending a hostel in Jaffna costing a total of 3200. Their "house" is a very poor palm leaf structure, and to build a small house would cost 7500. If any individual, school or organisation feels it can help raise funds for Kumarega's education or the family housing, please email Bob Uppington (Chair of Trustees, SHIVA Charity) at shivanepal@yahoo.com
