In the homeland, those who have suffered as a result of the Tsunami are given aid via the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation. Women impacted by the Civil War are given sewing machines amongst other necessities. People effected by the floods given aide via the Saiva British Organisation. Orphans who have lost their parents as a result of the Civil War (24 female students and 6 male students) for the past three years have been housed under Yaal/ Kanagathiram Mathya Maha Vithyaalayam (Stanley college). Moreover, we have been funding the supplies for all the necessary items they require to study and live.
The committee have decided that until the students finish their higher education to the standard of A Levels the temple would continuously support them.
To support these students, we have been sending them £780 every month.
For the students living in the housing it is necessary that they participate in extra curriculum and sports activities. To help the students take part we have sent extra money for sports equipment’s amongst other things.
In 2016, for the 30 students living in the housing, the committee sent over £2000 to buy new clothes and mosquito nets on Tamil New Years.
Moreover, we have decided on funding 20/30 children who have lost their parents as a result of the Civil War.
With the co-operation of the devotees we hope to undertake more projects like this for the needs of our people back home.
