The Northern Region of the SSSIO of Sri Lanka identified a disadvantaged family of four in need of shelter in the Puloly Northwest area of Point Pedro in Jaffna district. They were receiving limited support from the government, supplemented by monthly dry ration packs from the SSSIO. Volunteers from the local Sri Sathya Sai Centre procured a house with land, repaired the building, and gave it to the family. The land surrounding the house was used for home gardening, to earn a living from selling the produce. The house is also situated close to the children’s school. The project provided both shelter and regular income for the family. A housewarming ceremony was organized on July 24, 2021, the auspicious day of Guru Poornima.
