Ocean Stars has a very special in the hearts of all of us here at Grace Children’s Home.

You have truly transformed the lives of the children. They treasure the mattresses you bought them on your second visit to us in 2005. Over the years the gifts that you have donated to us with the support of Heatherside Infant School have made our home a very comfortable and calm place for the children to grow up in.

We now have desks and chairs, wardrobes, a drum set, a stereo CD player, playground equipment thank to Ocean Stars.

You visit us every year and this makes it very special for us. Other NGO’s come and visit us but they never return. The children of Grace feel that they have family in the UK because you treat them so warmly when you come to see us.

We look forward to working with Ocean Stars for many years to come.

Ocean Stars is a very special NGO and I love the work you do for the people of Sri Lanka. You first visited us soon after the tsunami when the people of Vellaimanl were all living in a camp. You played with the children and made them happy. Unlike other NGO’s you didn’t come just once and go away. You visit every year and you have helped the community in so many different ways.

You sponsor over 60 children and these families could not manage without the money you send them for their children’s education. The families love the fact that you bring tams every year and visit them in their homes. No one usually comes to visit us. The people feel very happy that you take time to meet their families. No other NGO does this.

 I thanks Ocean Stars from the bottom of my heart and would like to work with you for ever.

I have been working for Ocean Stars for the last 5 years. The work you do for the poor children of Sri Lanka warms my heart. The children are very happy to see you and they always laugh and smile when you visit. The children and teachers enjoy the different activities that you do with the children and they learn a lot of new activities. I like helping with the translating. I hope to work for Ocean Stars for a long time to come.

Janaka - Ocean Stars Driver

I look forward to your visits to Sri Lanka every October. The work you do with the poor people of Sri Lanka is inspiring and comes from your hearts. You love to spend time with the poor and give so much to the children. To hear the children’s laughter fills my heart with joy. You also give us the opportunity to help our people. Thank you Ocean Stars.

Miss Dilanee and Miss Shona, we would like to thank you both for coming down to Galle to visit our project. The children are so grateful for the opportunities you have given them to improve their education.

The money you send us helps us to pay the wages of our two teachers and to buy educational resources for the children. The parents are so grateful that the children have an opportunity to access education and study hard and do well at school.

We hope that we will continue to work with you for many years to come.

May God Bless you.

I have been working for Ocean Stars for the last six years. I really admire the work that Ocean Stars does for the children of Sri Lanka. I have driven for other NGO’s for my job over the past years. The difference with working for Ocean Stars is the personal contact you have with the projects and the children. You come every year and visit the projects. You get to know the people that you are working with and they really look forward to meeting you.

I am very happy that I am working for Ocean Stars and I hope you will continue helping the poor people of Sri Lanka for many years to come.
