Help Dayalan Sanders Rebuild His Orphanage in Srilanka - Fundaraiser,Gaithersburg,MD

On Monday, Diyana Sanders talked to her brother for a very 15 brief minutes.

"His wife and the children are in a state of shock," she said. "He sounded dejected, but he said he is not giving up. He is going to rebuild."

Dayalan Sanders, 50, left Gaithersburg in 1997 to start the Refugee Relief Gospel Mission. Within it, the Samaritan Children's Home houses orphans displaced by a bloody 20-year war. He built the mission in a small village near Nabalady in the eastern province of Batticoloa, between a lagoon and the Indian Ocean.

It took only moments for the once idyllic setting to turn to chaos, he told his sister. One of the children ran up to his wife; "the sea is coming," the child said.
