On 16 June the President of the Rotary Club of Kandy, Shamil Peiris, advised that our contribution was pooled with funds raised locally, and a matching grant (No. 55540) from the Rotary Foundation. The total raised, including the matching grant, totalled a whopping US$24,000!! This resulted in 15 fishing boats plus support for Tsunami Orphaned children. The boats have since been delivered last August 2005 and a plaque has been attached to 6 boats.
