Why Donate

In Sri Lanka, the waiting list for free heart surgeries at the government hospital is long and hence, many lives have been lost over these years. Our goal is to help the most critical cases who needs the surgery to be alive. We thank all those who have been making this possible by their donations all these years. We are happy to save with the funding of kind hearted souls, we managed to save 55 lives so far and are hoping to save more! Further, we offer Livelihood assistance to those who are affected by the war and as well to those who are suffering from an illness that requires monthly supplemental income. Kindly donate generously, so we can help make a difference in their lives. 100% of all your DONATIONS are sent to projects without any admin expenses deducted. All expenses are paid by Senthil Kumaran, the founder of this charity.


Livelihood Assistance

Abiharan Suntharalingam

18th Feb 2019 - This newly wed lovely couple Pirasanth & Thurka from Norway donated $1000 (CDN) to my charity as their wedding gift, through which they wished to help a family from North-East Sri Lanka with a livelihood assistance. We managed to help Mr & Mrs Suntharalingam from Devipuram-Mullaitivu, with a donation of $707 through which they bought a Cow. They have a 12 year old son Abiharan, who has been struggling with kidney disease he had acquired due to drinking the filthy water at the final stages of the war during 2009. They met me during my last visit Nov-Dec 2018 and explained the challenges they were facing to meet the expenses related to taking him to get dialyses & also to provide healthy food. Through this Cow, they will be able to sell milk and gain a revenue of Rs 10,000 - Rs 12,000 a month. Hope this will get them back on track. We also managed to help a mother from Kiran- Batticaloa, who lost 3 of her sons in the war. Her condition was so pathetic and hence we immediately sent $363 to buy goat which she had requested. Not one, but we managed to provide 2 livelihood assistance with the donation provided by Pirasanth & Thurka. Thanks to Thillai for connecting them. Please join me in wishing this lovely couple much happiness in their new life together!!!

We also provided goats to the family of Sivapiragasam K from Kiran, Batticaloa. The breadwinner can't walk or stand for long time as he had a knee injury during the war.

Lakshmanan

Received a call from Pararajasingam Sujeepan (from Sakthy TV) on Jan 22nd where he told me about how he met this person named Lakshmanan Thangarasa, who had lost both of his legs & some of his fingers due to the war in Sri Lanka. The thing that inspired me was the fact that Lakshman despite of his inability to walk has been using a tricycle to go fishing to support his wife (who had lost fingers) and his 4 daughters. However, the income wasn't enough to feed the family and was requesting help to Sujeepan. I immediately told Sujeepan that we will finance a project of Lakshman's choice to get him a fixed monthly income. Told my project coordinator Vaanan Kokilan to immediately visit the family and get things moving. As it is, I am trying to raise funds for the heart surgeries and am short of funds for a few surgeries. However, I couldn't resist assisting Lakshman as he truly has suffered 9 years since the end of the war ended in 2009. How can it be fair to watch him suffer longer?? Sent the funds immediately to build a Poultry Cage. Within hours, got a call from Harry Pathmarajah who wanted to help the same person. Harry has donated to my heart surgery project only recently. Despite he sent me etransfers to cover this project cost as well. This is why I keep doing what I am doing......There are so many good hearted people out there to support good causes. Thanks Harry!! Total amount sent $802 (Rs 100,000). Note: There are others who have helped the same person with Cattle, Washroom facilities, etc. Thanks to all those good souls!! Lakshman is well settled now. Thanks to Sakthy TV & Sujeepan for bringing this story out to the public!! There is a valuable lesson to be learned from this man Lakhsman.


Manjula

What a way to start a life!! Yes, Sri Anna (Ariyalai) & his family whom I've known for many years has donated $780 (Rs 104,715) towards the Livelihood Assistance of Mrs Manjula Jeyakumar (Varani - Kodikaamam) who lost her right foot due to the war in Sri Lanka. The donation was handed over to me during their daughters wedding ceremony day before yesterday, which I forwarded it yesterday to Mrs Jeyakumar, so can buy a cow and get a permanent income from the sale of milk. Mrs Jeyakumar approached me a month ago asking for assistance as her hard working husband's income wasn't sufficient to meet their family's needs. Blessings to Sinthuja Sri & Nimal for the donation!!! Happy married Life!!!


Mrs.Santhirasekaram

Met Mrs. Santhirasekaram who lost her husband due to kidney disease in Oddisuttan, Mullaitivu recently. Originally, I assured them to cover the medical expenses related to kidney transplant for her husband. However, due to their inability to find a matching donor, he passed away at a very young age of 36 leaving 3 small children behind. During my trip, I made sure to stop by Mullaitivu to see the family. When I offered help, she requested that she needed a Cow & a Calf to get a fixed monthly income. Thanks to Karthiga who immediately made arrangements to deliver the funds (Rs 65,000 - $525) right away to buy the needed cattle. Did a second stop at their house after a week to see how they are doing. Smile on their faces!! The least we could do to help this family. May Mr. Santhirasekaram's soul rest in peace.


Nitharsan Lokeswararaja - Tailor Shop

8th March 2019 - Request from a mother of 4 children (who had lost her husband due to an accident) came recently, where she was looking for a livelihood support especially to meet the expenses incurred due to her son's heart condition. Though operated, her 15 year old son Nitharsan had to be brought to hospital weekly for check up's. Hence we decided to donate her with an advanced Sewing machine, so both herself & her daughter can derive a permanent income from the tailor shop. We were glad to be there to witness the opening of her location @ Jeyapuram, Killinochchi in Sri Lanka. Total donated amount was Rs 61,094. We heard that they are progressing well with Rs 25,000 monthly income. Thanks to Nivaranam Donors. You can always reach out to me, if you would like to donate to a valuable cause as such this!

Pugalavan

Thanks to Jeyanthy Lepagaran's family for donating Rs 1 lakh ($791) during their musical program yesterday. Our latest beneficiary is Pukalavan who lost his right arm during the 2009 war and also lost his father, mother, sister & brother-in-law all due to the indiscriminate shelling by Sri Lankan armed forces at that time. He was an ex-cadre and have been facing challenges to find a permanent income to support his family. After hearing his story, I tried to help him at 3 different times with financial assistance but all were diverted to those whom he had identified as suffering even worse than him. He certainly has a big heart. When Jeyanthy called to invite me for her musical show, she also wanted to find me a suitable beneficiary to help with a livelihood assistance. The musical show was a treat for both ears & heart!

Ruban

Another Livelihood assistance provided to ex cadre who wanted to be self dependent. He has gotten wounds all over his body and hence has been facing challenges to do hard jobs. He requested to help him buy a Bike through which he can deliver fruits & vegetables to market and earn a decent living to support his wife & 2 kids. Arrangements were made where we would donate Rs 80,000 & he would come up with Rs 40,000 for a total of Rs 120,000 to buy the Bike. Here we go. We congratulate Kantharupan on his new venture and wish him the very best! Thanks to Nivaranam donors. Without U it wouldn't be possible. If u wish to donate,

திரு சிற்றம்பலம் வடிவேல் (இவர் ஷெல் வீச்சில் இடது கையில் மூண்டு விரல்களை இழந்தவர்) அவர்களுக்கு தேவையான, தோட்டம் செய்வதற்கான தண்ணீர் இறைப்பதற்கான இயந்திரம் மற்றும் வேலிக்கான முட்கம்பி என்ற பொருட்களை திரு முகமத் உசைன் என்பவறின் வன்பொருள் வணிகத்தில் வாங்கினோம். ருபாய் 85,000 பெறுமதியான இயந்திரத்தை நான் வாழ்வாதாரம் தொடர்பான செயல் என்று கூறி குறைத்து தருமாறு கேட்டவுடன் ரூபாய் 64,000 இற்கு பெருமனதோடு வழங்கினார் திரு உசைன். முட்கம்பி, குழாய் போன்ற மற்ற பொருட்களையும் வாங்கி கொடுத்தோம். சிற்றம்பலம் வடிவேல் அவர்களின் துணைவியார் தாங்கள் ஏழ்மை நிலையில் இரு பிள்ளைகளை வளர்க்க படும் வேதனைகளை கூற மனம் பாரமாக இருந்தது. அவர்களுக்கு இந்த தண்ணீர் இறைக்கும் இயந்திரம் கிடைத்தது மட்டற்ற மகிழ்ச்சி

Yasochjiny

A request for financial assistance came from an ex-cadre Miss Yasochjiny Sabaratnam (Killinochchi), whose right leg has been amputated due to the shelling by the Sri Lankan army back in 2009. She has been struggling to support herself & her mother all along and finally found a job that pays Rs 12,000 (Sri Lankan Currency) per month. However, she has been spending Rs 6500 per month in commuting expenses alone as she has to hire an Auto (three wheeler) for transport since there is no bus service to that area from her residence. At times, she has to wait till midnight to come home, depending on the availability of the ride. Though she has lost her leg, she hasn’t lost her confidence to be part of the working force. Hence, I approached Arulraj Thambiraja who met me at the birthday celebration of Mrs. Annamma last month where he had assured me to help and sponsor one such livelihood assistance. Here we go, Miss Yasochjiny Sabaratnam was delivered a new 2 wheeler which will help her commute to work. Thanks Arul for your kindness and donation of Rs 140,000 ($1100 Canadian). One more person lifted up.
