From a hobby which seemed to just keep growing, my friends and I have started to make and repair brocade decorations in our house. Last week, we held a sort of ‘Christmas Shop’. The amounts that we made go to a charity. This year we want to support you. In April we are planning to be at a ‘market’ in Jelsum (in Friesland) and we propose to donate what we make to the Stichting. Could you possibly send us some leaflets and photos to decorate our stand?

On behalf of the children from our orphanages in Sri Lanka, our thanks to the Board of the Stichting Netherlands Sri Lanka and to all their donors for their generosity over the past year. Through this financial support we are able to continue our work for the orphans of Sri Lanka.
This year, I have not sent any Christmas cards from the company. The money saved has been made over to the Stichting Netherlands Sri Lanka. I wish you a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

I read your report of your trip with great pleasure. I think it is excellent that with the help of the money from donors, you can help the children and also support local businesses. Really, really, really super! Keep up the good work!
