Supporting Sri Lanka
April 6, 2022–Operation USA is so pleased to have delivered a $14,000 grant to the Jaffna Diocesan Centre for Fishing Industry Workers in Sri Lanka. The funds were donated by a generous supporter with a special interest in supporting Sri Lanka, and will support home reconstruction in the country, which continues to grapple with the long-lasting impact of the Sri Lankan Civil War. A generous corporate match of $14,000 will also be delivered to the organization, helping to construct additional homes in the fishing village where many families were deeply affected by thirty years of combat and three years of war. The Jaffna Diocesan Centre has already allocated land to 225 families and constructed 148 houses, made possible by generous private donors, and with this gift and matching grant will construct at least four more. OpUSA is proud to contribute to this worthy effort.
