Shouldn't everyone have a place to call home this Christmas? 29-Nov-2011

Published for:CAFOD

We think so. But many people in war-torn Sri Lanka have had houses - and lives - destroyed. When fighting erupted in their Sri Lankan village, Surenthiran and her family ran in terror. They returned to find their home destroyed. With nowhere else to go, they lived in camps and makeshift shelters, never feeling safe. ?I used to think: ?How long must we bear this? Will we ever return alive?? Our housing projects provide much more than bricks and mortar ? they give the poorest families a chance to start life again. Surenthiran says the security of her new home is the best gift she could imagine. This Christmas, will you help us give hope and security to families like Surenthiran?s?
