Doreen with her new leg
There is no welfare or support in Sri Lanka but the assistance of two friends of FODAD meant that Doreen did not become a crippled beggar on the street.Tess Boswood, a FODAD Trustee, paid for medication and a new leg and our good friend Mary Fugle paid Doreen's rent. Doreen never stopped smiling throughout her terrible ordeal and her only concern was her boys' education.

Since January of 2018 Doreen has taught Tamil and Sinhala on a voluntary basis at our school on the beach. Her younger son Smith heard that he had 3 A level passes in that same month. He will go to University next year. A scholarship in honour of Tess will support him. A wonderful legacy.
