The project was implemented through the Trincomalee Welfare Association-Canada (TWA), which is registered as a non-profit organization in Canada and Sri Lanka. Until yesterday the home was functioning in a temporary building with about twenty-five children, sources said

The TWA-Canada is currently administering two children homes one for girls in Mallikaitivu in Muttur and for boys in Sambaltivu. Children who have become orphans and destitute by civil war and tsunami disaster are given shelter in these homes. Food, clothing, medical care and education are provided to these children by the TWA, sources said.

The new building, which is being constructed for Mallikaitivu children home at a cost of 4.5 million rupees, is nearing completion and is to be commissioned in April this year.

The TWA has nominated two Action Committees for the management of these Homes and each Committee comprises seven members. In addition a superintendent, a cook and a watcher have been appointed for each of these two Homes, TWA sources said.

Currently the TWA-Canada has been implementing five projects, maintaining homes for the destitute, provide financial assistance to indigent university students, provide salary to volunteer teachers, supplying nutritious food to children and providing relief and rehabilitation to affected families in the Trincomalee district, sources said.
