The ‘Centre for Holistic Healing” of the Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India helps the girls who are studying at the University of Jaffna, the Fine Arts section at Maruthanarmadam by running a hostel for those who come from other areas of Sri Lanka like Puttalam, Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Ampara etc. This ministry is carried out at the ‘Gitanjali Hostel’ at the premises of the Mc. Leod hospital at Inuvil. Though the buildings of the historical hospital founded by the American Missionaries and later handed over to the Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India, the old destroyed buildings which could be renovated are being used by the ‘Centre for Holistic Healing’ for various ministries like the elders’ home, girls’ hostel, Bethel, a shelter home, lecture hall and office etc of the Centre for Holistic Healing. “Blessing in disguise”. Many Muslim girls prefer to stay at our hostel as they feel it is safe and congenial.
