Project Trust students have been working side by side, unloading, hauling, separating and packaging donated items such as clothes, dry rations, bottled drinking water, medical supplies, sanitation supplies, and various other emergency housing supplies. Project Trust is a program that includes 17 students ranging from 17 to 19 years of age from England, Scotland and the Netherlands.
These students have spent the last three days volunteering four to six hours a day of their personal time, in order to aid in relief work here at the Sarvodaya headquarters. As supplies and rations continue to pour in, the students have been working hard with the aid of other volunteers and local staff, in order to get the trucks packed and on their way to about 15 Tsunami affected regions in Sri Lanka.
As 90 percent of relief work done at Sarvodaya is done by volunteers, the assistance provided by groups such as Project Trust is greatly needed and appreciated. The students will continue to offer their time and service until January 10th, when they will resume their individual teaching projects around in their respective towns around Sri Lanka.
