Help a mother fix her storm damaged kitchen and washroom before she gives birth

In the last month there have been high winds and heavy rains in the tea plantations where we work. This has led to many houses being damaged.

Landt is a lovely lady from the tea estates who works for a social enterprise called AMMA that Tea Leaf Trust supports. She is heavily pregnant and due to give birth next week!!!

Her kitchen, already in poor condition, was badly damaged in the storms and she is now faced with the choice of fix the roof, or buy items for her new baby. Although her part-time work is helping her family out of poverty, the cost of living in Sri Lanka is very high and repairs such as this are just not possible on the family's income. We are trying to raise money to fix it for her as soon as possible.

Some of the funds will hopefully be raised by selling a beautiful quilt that she has embroidered (with all profits going to this end). This link is to donate, however, should you wish to view the quilt, please visit:

Tea Leaf Trust are proud to partner with the wonderful AMMA (, a social enterprise who employ tea estate mothers to make naturally-dyed textile products using food waste.

    Thank you so much to everyone who has supported this cause. We have now raised enough money to fix Landt's kitchen and washroom!!! This is amazing news.

    From these couple of pictures you will see that even with the roof fixed, it is not in great shape. Therefore we have stretched our fundraising target to enable us to help with some additional renovations such as reinforcing the walls and applying a coat of paint.

    Thank you again.
