Laying Foundation for Piyasili's New House - DhammaUS Housing Project #1

Laying of Foundation took place for Piyasili's New House after demolishing the old thatched house. With the blessing of Ven. Walathara Mahinda Thero. The soldiers of the local army camp helped us a lot in demolishing the old house and our DhammaUS team was overseeing the whole procedure. Thank you each and everyone of our friends in USA and elsewhere for helping us in many different ways. Hope to keep you posted with the latest updates soon. Here are some of the photos of the event:
