Sri lanka – Livelihood Projects

Empowering the impoverished for a sustainable livelihood

In September 2023, Mountain of Mercy has been actively transforming the lives of those in need in Sri Lanka. Through innovative livelihood projects, such as giving cycle rickshaws and canoes for fishing and transportation, Mountain of Mercy has been empowering the most vulnerable sections of society.

This project has been successful, thanks to the generosity of the donors who have supported and contributed to it. Mountain of Mercy expresses heartfelt gratitude towards all its donors and aims to expand and scale this initiative in the future, in hopes of bringing a positive change for many more deserving individuals in Sri Lanka.

SRI lanka projects

Rebuilding a devastated community and more

After the devastation of the Tsunami Disaster in 2004 many families in poor rural villages were left displaced… the homes wrecked, their livelihood (mostly fishing gear) destroyed. Mountain of mercy from 2005 – 2018 carried out projects that included purchasing of crafted boats/engines/fishing nets and building of homes which now place several poor people into a place to live.

We have now completed in access of 800 water wells in various locations of Sri lanka and continue to do so. The demand for water wells if forever growing and with your donations we continue to fulfil the most basic of human needs.

Sri lanka – Medical clinic

Providing support for the most vulnerable

In 2012 a medical clinic which is now a hospital was built in the town of Puttalam.

Doctors of Puttalam town donated a building to Puttalam Urbal council. Over time this building had become very dilapidated and due to the crumbling structure of the building the council was unable to provide all the necessary services.

Liasing with the Urban Council, Mountain Of Mercy extended its helping hand to construct a spacious building with 6 rooms sufficient not only to function as a ‘maternity and child clinic’ but also as the place where the people of Puttalam seek all types of Western and indigenous medical treatments. The Department of Provincial Health assisted the council by engaging 3 Medical officers and 3 family Health Workers (Midwives).

In addition there are also 3 health volunteers to facilitate the activities in the centre, The Department of Health Services conduct the following programmes on a regular basis at the clinic.

A number of other projects within the region including the building of many water wells as well as a brand-new medical centre.

Bangladesh projects

During the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, Mountain of Mercy helped to distribute food packs for the underprivileged in Bangladesh who’d be most affected by the societal impacts of the virus. This emergency food distribution allowed many to “Stay at home, Safe from CoVid” who’d otherwise may have flouted quarantine rules with no other options.

In 2015 Mountain Of Mercy handed out over 50 Rickshaws to men with families who would have otherwise paid a large amount of their measly wage as rent for the vehicle.

Since 2017 Mountain of Mercy has been building wells in rural areas of the Satkhira district. A necessity that many of us take for granted but for millions of people world wide a day to day struggle to find clean drinking water. To date we have built over 200 wells which has benefited a great amount of people.

Mountain of Mercy has also been working towards constructing and renovating mosques within the Satkhira district of Bangladesh.

Mountain of Mercy is currently working on a project to provide boats to the underprivileged. This project is in the southern part of the Satkhira district where many people depend on fishing on the river. The aim of the project is that the fishermen will be owners of their own boats rather than having to take out loans with high interest rates, and who will be able to earn USD 100+ a month.
