What is the mission trip about?
Caritas SED Galle (CSG) is the diocesan centre for social-economic development of the Diocese of Galle (Southern Sri Lanka) working in collaboration with Caritas Sri Lanka. CSG implements projects to uplift underprivileged villagers; to create awareness for their self-improvement; to promote peace and harmony among the different groups, and to provide support during times of disasters and emergencies.
The challenge to provide drinking water and the severe lack of sanitation for the villagers have been mounting. In January 2016, CHARIS provided funding for the construction of 30 toilets and 20 bio-sand units.
Come mid-June, a CHARIS mission friendship team will be deployed to help residents with the building of these toilets and also to implement the bio-sand filtration system. Join us as we work hand-in-hand with our brothers and sisters in need to help rebuild their homes and their lives. Come experience faith in action, the joy of mission work, and fellowship with team members and beneficiaries.
