The Fishing Village
The fishing village is at the end of the beach near the Mount Lavinia Hotel. Della was in the village when the second Tsunami wave hit. When the third wave hit the village was almost totally destroyed and the families evacuated to the local school.
In 2005 The Friends of Della and Don decided that they wanted to support the Village and make it self-sufficient. They bought a fishing boat, an engine and nets and has been supporting the children with clothing and toys as well as feeding them at either St. Mary's School or the Montessori School (Sri Lankans call all nursery schools by this name)
The fishermen have been able to make a living for the village with our help. The Friends of Della and Don intends to continue to support the fishermen and help with the supply of new nets and fishing lines when needed as well as essential boat repairs.
