In 2006, the Paulchen Esperanza foundation supported the Vicelin Shalom community of Norderstedt with a donation for the play school of Galle. We decided to choose this indirect way because we already were in contact with Mr. Rupasinghe immediately after the Tsunami catastrophe.
At this time, in 2004, we (the Hammelmann family) wanted to provide a big donation that was guaranteed to be received by the affected people. We already had very good experiences with Mr. Rupasinghe and the Shalom community on how they distributed the donations.
Galle is a region that was significantly affected by the Tsunami. So, the play school certainly is a very good investment in the region.
Through Mr. Rupasinghe we got in contact with Mr. Nanayakkara who helped us find new projects over there. Mr. Nanayakkara is also supporting us on-site on a voluntary basis.
