Senior Home in Baddegama - Sri Lanka

The Lotus Flower

symbolizes purity and divine birth.



The Board of Directors and employees of the Sevagram foundation (care organisation in South Limburg) have much sympathy for the people affected by the tsunami in 2004. One of their employees (Anja Saf) has a close connection to the village of Baddegama, close to the city of Galle in the South West of Sri Lanka. She was a Board member of the Van der Looij Welfare Foundation and was visiting the village at the time of the tsunami, and experienced everything first hand. This Welfare Foundation is a Dutch organisation that supports the local monks who operate the schools and take care of education.


Through contact with the Sevagram Foundation we decided to take the initiative and create a small-scale care center for the elderly in Baddegama. In recent years there has been a great deal of work and numerous activities organised for the purpose of fundraising. Thanks to the commitment of a large number of employees and volunteers from the Sevagram foundation and the involvement of the Vebego Foundation our small scale elderly care center now consisting of 4 houses and a main communal building.

This project was completed on November 24th 2009 However a number of former employees and volunteers from the Sevagram foundation felt that support from the Netherlands would still be necessary so they united themselves and formed a foundation called the Senehasa Foundation and have took it upon themselves to continue helping with the development of the Senehasa senior care center.

Our mission is that over a period of time the care center will be able to grow into a self-sufficient care center for the elderly.

We are looking for volunteers to organize activities that will help support our fundraising.

tion are very welcome, all contributions made will be sent directly to the foundations ongoing projects.
