Sharing the care work in Sri Lanka

MenCare Sri Lanka shared this photo and story of transformation from Kalimutthu Mathiyalagan, a father of four and a MenCare fathers’ group participant, in the Nuwara Eliya Area Development Program:

“Through MenCare, I learned how much my wife is discriminated against when we don’t share household activities. She works restlessly at home – taking care of the children, cooking, washing, cleaning. I do a lot less work at home and have enough time to rest. If I help her, she can find some time to rest. [Now] I want my children to grow well and be well educated. I am committed to that.”
