Visit of Fr. Herbert Kaefer of Misereor

Fr Herbert Kaefer who is a volunteer in fund-raising for Misereor, Germany was in Sri Lanka on a 3-day visit from 29th to 31st of October during which he visited the Galle Diocese where he was received by Rev Fr Michael Rajendram, Director of Caritas SEDGalle.

The aim of Fr Herbert's visit was to get an understanding of the living standards of plantation communities who are in the front lines of tea production in this country.

Fr Herbert visited tea estates in Deniyaya where he could meet and interact with plantation workers. He also held discussions with members of the Vigilant Committees established in some of the estates under the Green Gold Harvesters Project initiated by Caritas Sri Lanka. This project, supported by Misereor, is being implemented in the Dioceses of Ratnapura, Kandy and Badulla as well.
