Special needs care orphanage Sri Lanka

Hey all, I'm currently volunteering in Kandy,Sri Lanka doing special needs care and disable care through an in country  organization called the Green Lion and will be here for the next few weeks. From the moment I stepped foot in the doors it was obvious to me that the conditions were very poor and they were severely lacking in resourse and care takers, there are currently 115 disabled children and adults living in the facility with only 9 care takers to look after all of them. After spending some time there I knew I wanted to do more than I am to help but I need your help. If you are able to donate any amount will be appreciated and will go a very long way to improving the quality of life for these treasures. All funds raised will go directly to the needs of the people in the orphanage, such as medicine, wheelchairs, new clothing and bedding, head lice treatment, toys and entertainment, basic education needs, food and special days and events. If you are able to donate please share this and encourage others to share this so that it can reach as many people as possible. Unfortunately the situation is very bad in Sri Lanka for the disabled, most being abandoned or worse killed at birth if the  disability is severe enough, I am unable to share any photos or videos from the orphanage for their safety and privacy but i will post a video talking in depth about their situation. If you are interested in volunteering there is a link below to IVHQ https://www.volunteerhq.org/volunteer-abroad-projects/special-needs-care/ (Scroll down for Chinese version 往下拉有中文版本) 大家好!我們來自世界各地,現在於斯里蘭卡做義工。我們透過當地組織Green Lion在一間孤兒院服務。 當中有兒童至老年人,他們都有身體上(例如不能走動、大頭症)、智力上(輕度至重度智障)以及心理上(例如自閉、專注力不足)殘疾。很多因為這些先天性殘疾而被父母拋棄,或者父母遇上天災人禍而成為孤兒。如果沒有人願意照顧他們,他們就會一生之久留在孤兒院之中。 我們看到孤兒院的環境貧困,資源不足,主要靠慈善團體或人士捐贈物資或金錢。當中有115名孤兒,但只有9名主要照顧者。 身而為人,需要尊嚴、關懷和支持。你願意看到這些先天飽受痛楚的孤兒綻開燦爛笑容嗎?我們十分他們得到更完善的生活環境。 所以,你的捐贈能成為他們好大的幫助。這些捐贈都會直接送到孤兒院,讓他們能增添藥物、設施、食物、玩具、教育所需等等。 因為私隱緣故,我們不能公開他們的照片。 除了物質上的幫助,他們更需要給予愛和關懷,如果你有興趣做義工到當地幫忙(他們十分歡迎),可以到以下國際義工組織International Volunteer HQ了解更多
