Housing Development-Habitat for Humanity
Celebrating two decades since the birth of Odel, we are partnering with Habitat for Humanity to build 20 houses to mark the occasion. The Tsunami in 2004, triggered our collaboration with this international organisation that constructs simple and affordable houses for those in need. We funded the building of 7 houses of 500 sq. ft. each, to help resettle families in the Balapitiya area, 80km from Colombo. This relationship was further solidified when in 2009, Otara was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity in Sri Lanka.
The Odel Foundation also donated Rs. 4 Mn to Leo Hope, for the Kosgoda Trust to construct houses for residents affected by the Tsunami in the Kosgoda area.
