Sri Lanka Card Project

November 8th, 2009 How it started

After the 2004 tsunami many refugee camps and homes were set up to take in displaced children and their families. A group of camp volunteers started entertaining the children in whatever way they could. They juggled, sang, played football and painted faces.

Before they knew it they were running workshops for children in many camps, homes and other communities. One of the activities was colouring and some of the team realised the pictures would make nice Christmas cards. So they made them, sold them and spent the money on the children’s homes.

2005 playground sessions

Over the last five years, the project has entertained hundreds of children, raised thousands of pounds and sent Christmas cards all over the world.
