Vithusha and Thanusha’s Mother and Father both died in the war. They have two brothers and they all live with their mothers sister Vinotha, and her two children. Vinotha’s husband was paralyzed in the war, and one of her daughters was killed. She now looks after all six children, and provides food and education for them all by herself. The brothers do labor work in the school holidays to help. They all live together in a small house made of mud, and in the morning they move their bed mats so there is room.
