2017 Sri Lanka Teachers Trip

Chan Hoi Yan


I was deeply touched by the local World Vision staff during the visit. They were on the frontline and understood the various needs of the locals. Not only did they provide support in terms of materials, living conditions and education, but more importantly, they really took care of people’s psychological needs and offered emotional support.

I thank God for showing me the work of World Vision in Sri Lanka. I was quite touched when I first met the poor there. When the locals saw us, a group of strangers, they were not defensive at all, instead they were very friendly and took selfies with us. Yet, beyond these friendly faces are spirits broken by poverty and a civil war.

During the tour, our group visited many different development projects, such as education, economic growth, sanitation and hygiene, health and nutrition, water, counselling and etc. One day, we had to lead activities for a children’s club called the Butterfly Club. In the beginning, the adults and children were all very reserved, but after getting to know one another, everyone was participating actively. It was a hot day, but we were not afraid. Instead, our hearts were melted by these children’s smiles and passion.
