PRESS RELEASE: Little Aid volunteer Ella Redhead travels by tuc tuc to deliver shoes to 82 primary school children for Little Aid!

A tuc tuc is a fond name for Sri Lanka's most interesting mode of transport, also known as a "three-wheeler". Incredibly ambitious volunteer Ella contacted Little Aid through our Facebook page. She was keen to do something to help the needy in Sri Lanka. Ella is a primary school teacher from Manchester. Ella raised money herself to distribute shoes to 82 primary school children in Killinochchi.

To make things more interesting Ella and her colleague drove a tuc tuc themselves from Colombo to Killinochchi, where she was met by staff at Vivekananda Maha Vidiyalayam, Ambalkullam, Killinochchi. On Friday 2nd August a small celebration was held, and attended by Ella, representing Little Aid.

Mr Joseph Vitharana, our representative in Sri Lanka & Killinochchi MP Hon. Murugesu Chandrakumar The school's headmistress Mrs Manikavasagar was delighted to host the event where the shoes were given to the children. This school is in a very remote part of Killinochchi and the majority of the children are extremely poor, having been moved to the area after the 1977 & 1983 riots against Tamil minorities.

Ella plans to do more work in Killinochchi in future, and we at Little Aid are really grateful for her support! Thank you!
