Yala Fund was set up after the 2004 Tsunami to help distressed families in the area around Yala National Park in south-eastern Sri Lanka. Yala's work has widened from the initial Tsunami aid to focus on the deprived and desperately poor of this area, mainly the children.

We repair broken down classrooms, build toilets, put in water supplies, buy shoes, textbooks and bicycles and award medical and study grants. We are also providing much needed equipment and support for the local Tissamaharama Hospital.

Since starting work in 2005, Yala Fund has raised in excess of £800,000 and helped thousands of children in this remote part of the world. For more information, please visit our Facebook page
