Bridging Lanka, bringing people together in post war torn Sri Lanka.

Today is my last day in Sri Lanka. I have been here for two weeks, doing some work with my old friend Jeremy Liyanage who has returned to initiate a program called Bridging Lanka, bringing people of different ages, genders, cultures, religions, languages and traditions together in post war torn Sri Lanka. I had the privilege to take some sessions with the Bridging Lanka staff at their retreat.

The staff are a wonderful mix of English speaking, Tamil speaking and Sinhala speaking Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists, (including erstwhile members of the extremist Bodu Bala Sena or Buddhist Power Force) who are now seeking to embody a new united Sri Lanka. I wish them all the very best in their endeavours in the years ahead. Dave Andrews
