This is our SAVE LIFE project

During our work for the tsunami victims at the end of 2004 and in 2005, we met many parents whose sick children urgently needed help. At the end of 2005, we therefore decided to start the SAVE LIFE project. Within the scope of SAVE LIFE, we have helped in providing funds for heart surgeries, corrections of cleft lips and palates and increasingly for cancer therapies. However, health problems that are not fatal are also on our support list, such as for example eye surgeries in case of visual impairments, hearing aids in case of deafness, medication for juvenile diabetes and a lot more. The best insight into our work is provided by the visit report at the end of this page. Jeanette Kühn (founder and Director of House of Hope) visited a few of our SAVE LIFE children in Sri Lanka in 2015.

Our first patient in 2005 was little Chamodya Nethmini (1.5 years). She had a congenital heart defect and urgently needed surgery. In 2015, Jeanette Kühn met the girl again. She is meanwhile ten years old, healthy, goes to school and gives her parents a lot of joy. Unfortunately, the family is very poor and Nethmini suffered from malnutrition. She was admitted to our Food & Education Programme in 2011 in order to ensure that she has enough to eat and receives as good a school education as possible.

We accompany our children even after medical treatment for at least one year with food donations and follow-up examinations. If necessary, we support the children through our Food & Education Programme until they have reached the age of 18 and/or found a workplace.

After returning from her visit to the project in Sri Lanka (2015), Jeanette Kühn reported as follows: "It was very difficult for me to accept the deep gratitude of the families whose children we are taking care of: All of them fell onto their knees in front of me, touching the ground with their foreheads. I begged them not to do so, but in vain. All the families and children whom I met bowed to the ground several times. For us, who are having a good live in Germany, it is almost unbelievable how much our financial support changes in the lives of these families. Even small amounts of 30 to 50 euros per month help provide a child with medical care and sufficient food. Your donation directly goes to the children. Please continue to support us in our effort to give these children a chance."

On the occasion of Jeanette Kühn's visit to Sri Lanka, the team of House of Hope organised a "Beneficiaries Gathering" in Colombo - SAVE LIFE children and the protégés of the FOOD & EDUCATION Programme gathered to talk, play and eat with each other and to motivate themselves mutually. After the official welcome (by House of Hope assistant Nadeesha), Jeanette Kühn thanked all the parents for their strength to raise their disabled children and for the never-ending love they give them despite all the difficulties. And YES, we will continue to help and to give the families the feeling of not being alone with this huge task.

In 2015, House of Hope celebrated its 10th anniversary. Anu Perera, our lawyer and country coordinator for Sri Lanka, brought a birthday cake, a young student came with his guitar and little Tharushi (brain tumour) sang a "Happy Birthday" song with her father and all the children and parents joined in. It was really very touching (see picture gallery below).

Many helpers in Sri Lanka have accompanied us for some time during these ten years. Together with Anu Perera, who represents House of Hope in Sri Lanka, we handed over certificates we had prepared and expressed a great THANK YOU by heartily embracing each other (see picture gallery below).
