Paradise Lost: Part II

The well organized Buddhist’s were able to pressure the Government into postponing it’s acceptance of the foreign aid plan, while they structured and submitted one that favored their own interests, at the cost others. But the NGO’s held firm, and finally the Government had stated that it would sign legislation in June 2005 to follow the NGO’s plan, opposing the Buddhists.

But most of the orphanages, especially on the north and east coasts, still had no assistance. To add insult to injury, the larger NGO’s had an unwritten policy of staying away from orphanages in the belief that, if the orphanages were brought up to an international Polonnaruwa – ruins from about 760 ACE standard, a flood of parents would abandon their children in the hope the children would have a better life.
