Child Action Lanka
Child Action Lanka is one of a number of charities that St John’s supports via the mission partnership team.
About Child Action Lanka
Child Action Lanka (CAL) works to assist and transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Sri Lanka.
Their mission is to protect the most disadvantaged children and provide holistic education, health and nutrition promoting their basic needs, rights and interests to enable them, their families and communities to be individuals who bring positive change.
This work was originally started by Debbie and Dilshan Edirisinghe who felt God call them to reach out to children living in poverty around them in Kandy, many of whom had no home except the streets.
Our work with CAL
This is CAL’s message to St John’s:
Thanks you for being part of us…we consider our successes to be yours too and we are truly working together to transform lives.
CAL has been one of the mission partners of St. John’s since 2012. Since then we have been praying for them and giving a share of our annual Mission tithe. There have also been a number of people going out to visit or volunteer.
Links have been forged with both the charity and the church that Dilshan and Debbie lead there. Many of the staff involved with CAL are Christians living out their faith through a practical expression of their love of Jesus.
