Lars Laj x Nest Community Charity
Nest is a non-profit organization established in 1987, supporting women and children affected by difficult life circumstances in Sri Lanka. Currently there are 400 women under psychiatric and health care.
The goal of the center is to try to normalize the lives of the clients, teach them necessary skills and provide emergency health care.
Over time, Nest has evolved and works to strengthen families and residents across the island. Health workers train the local community how to deal with emergencies so that they can be as self-reliant as possible.
Nest works exclusively with government hospitals and helps wherever possible.
