Centre For Disabled Children, Trincomalee
In 2005, together with the local partner MENCAFEP (Mentally Handicapped Children & Families Educational Project) and supported by Zorg en Zekerheid, a day-care centre for disabled children was established. In 2010 another new ‘day care centre’ was established. HealthNet TPO here not solely helps the children attending it, but also focuses on the rehabilitation of the families of the children.

Since 2002 HealthNet TPO has supported research in Sri Lanka with local partner organization Shantiham, as part of an effectiveness study on mental health interventions and the execution of mental health activities. In 2004 the Child Thematic Project was – among others- implemented in Sri Lanka, to test our model in the north with collaboration of Shantiham. After the political changes in Sri Lanka in 2010, HealthNet TPO continues to explore how to optimally support the programme of rebuilding local communities in the Northern Provinces after years of war. Additionally, the MENCAFEP project will be executed till April 2011.
Recently there were floods in Sri Lanka. Also the MENCAFEP centre was severely hit. Help us restore the centre and give the children a medical check to prevent diseases via Pifworld.com.
