Please pray for Sri Lanka

Last year One Horizon gave $15,000 to help construct a nutrition and educational center for children in Galle, Sri Lanka. The center is part of a compound called the "Sayana Children's Village" that was constructed after the Tsunami to help house families and care for children whose homes and lives were drastically affected by that catastrophe. The pictures above show that the center is nearing completion and has been slowly but steadily built through a partnership between A.I.M.(Assistance in Motion), Global Action, and One Horizon. However, the ongoing war in Sri Lanka has greatly hampered efforts by elevating costs, compromising security, and making building supplies less available. This in turn has led to an even greater need for places like the center where children can receive proper nourishment both physically and emotionally. Please pray that the necessary funds will be raised to facilitate completion of this project and that peace will soon come to the people of Sri Lanka. Thanks...........
