$13,000 needed to finish Nambikkai Illam Girls' Dorm
New Girls’ Dorm
So Close: Nambikkai Illam Orphanage in Tamil Nadu desperately needs a new girls’ dormitory for their 80 girls. These girls come from unfortunate backgrounds and now they need a comfortable and safe place to sleep. Nambikkai Illam takes in some of the neediest children who have nowhere else to go.
World’s Children donors have contributed $65,000 to this girls’ dorm and it is nearing completion. The ground floor is completed, but the project needs an additional $13,000 to complete the upper story.
“I am happy to tell you that we have completed the construction of ground floor successfully. At the same time we feel sad to tell you that we could not complete the upper story construction. The roof concrete work is completed. Plastering, electric, tiles and painting work is pending. We need to finish within three months when school starts.
After Covid-19 the prices of construction materials such as cement, sand, bricks, steel bars and ties has gone very high. They are too expensive hence we could not go further with construction. We have no other source of income. Kindly consider our estimate.” — Sister Stella, NI Administrator
