The kids at Samudra Sri are adorable! Samudra Sri, means â€œBeautiful by the Seaâ€ and is the orphanage that we are filming at here in Sri Lanka. Most of these children lost their parents to the war in Sri Lanka or the tsunami. Others come from poverty stricken situations where one or both parents could not take care of them.
We have been interviewing the children and learning more about their stories. What is remarkable is that with all that they have to be sad about in their lives, they are so happy here. The staff of AED seems to really care about them, the place that they live is full of fun and learning and as we talk to them we learn that they look ahead to a bright future. We will be telling more of their stories in the near future!
