We need you!
After being incorporated in February 2017, Karuna Sri Lanka Inc. committed to provide funding to cover the Yasodara Girls’ Orphanage’s daily running costs – including utilities, food, clothes, wages for the matrons and schooling for up to 30 girls.
Monthly expenses were approximately 240,000 Sri Lankan rupees (AUD 2,000 or GBP 1,160) and that just covered the basics!
Following the closure of the orphanage (see ‘Our story’) we now cover Shashi’s (our amazing local coordinator) wages, as well as providing funds to ensure the girls have their basic needs covered and receive a minimum level of education.
Ideally, we are looking for donors that are able to commit to ongoing monthly donations. We have an Australian bank account and all you have to do is set up a recurring monthly transfer of however much you can spare. Even $10 will make a difference! Of course, we happily accept one-off donations as well.
Account name: Karuna Sri Lanka Inc.
We hold DGR (deductible gift recipient) status, meaning that all donations of $2 and above made by Australian taxpayers are tax deductible and donors will receive a receipt at the end of the financial year to be used for their tax return.
For donations in currencies other than Australian dollars please use the Give Now fundraising portal. Please note that international donations can only be made with credit cards.
We also welcome new committee members or friends who can organise or help with fundraising activities.
Thank you in advance.
