In late November, 2009 the Humpty Dumpty Institute helped to relieve some of the suffering of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) of Sri Lanka. Connie Milstein, who is chairwoman of the board of directors of the HDI and is also a co-founder, was pleased to note that over $300,000 worth of humanitarian aid was distributed, consisting of, supplies for schools, orphanages and hygienic kits.
The funding for this aid was generously supplied by LDS Charities in the wake of the recent violent conflicts in Sri Lanka. The variety of supplies distributed included 1,855 hygiene kits to the women’s detention camp where about 2,000 IDPs are located. On the same day, November 25th, school kits and orphanage kits were distributed at another camp.
The leading role in which Connie Milstein played in the betterment if the IDPs in Sri Lanka speaks volumes about her caring and concern for the many people in need around the world.
