At the request of her son, we provided financial assistance for the hip replacement surgery of Mrs. D.M. Somawathi, of Bibile, Sri Lanka. As she was unable to afford this operation previously, Mrs. Somawathi suffered with pain and poor mobility for several years. We are glad to report that the operation was a success and she has already fully recovered. The Somawathi family met Bhante Y. Wimala and expressed gratitude for helping their mother walk again. As always, we are grateful to all the friends who support our efforts to help people like Mrs. Somawathi.
