From mid 1950's onwards, Catholic terror in Buddhist VIETNAM led to the killing of about a million people. Fanatic Catholic dictator Ngo Dinh Diem issued U.S. Food Aid only to Catholics. Thousands of Buddhist protesters and monks were imprisoned in “detention camps.” Huge numbers are involved: 500, 000 were incarcerated, 80,000 were executed, etc. Soon, the prisons became no-nonsense death camps.
The dictator was a clown under the American foreign policy and the cat came out of the bag when in early 2001, George Bush made a speech to convey an important message. He said that he would no longer support the developing third world countries through their respective governments but would channel American aid through the American Christian Relief Organizations in these countries.
World Vision is one such organization. Their first clause of the mission is “We are Christians and the last clause is “We will convey the good message of God”.
There are many organizations in Sri Lanka support the unethical conversions and this pre-school project supported by Helabima organization targeted to stop it or at least make a voice among the Buddhist people in Sri Lanka. Based on the evidence from the people in affected villages, it was able to found some local people connected to World Vision and similar organizations were distributing following items via them to disregard Buddhism.
It is very doubtful whether these people with irascible and vulgar personalities can overwhelm Buddhism in such attempts in Sri Lanka where the hearts of the Buddhists will not be filled by blind faith but facts. However, it is to be noted that those attempts were also made to change the mind of children and it would be comparatively easier. The youngest age is not just the age for learning to socialize, but also the age which determines if your child is going to be some one who loves books, or hates books. It is also the time when rationality and irrationality ("faith") are also ingrained into the brain.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace,
but a sword. (Matthew Ch 10: Vs 34)
The fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth
with fire and brimstone.– Revelation 21:8
The civilized western Christian people avoided such sensitive and contradictory clauses appearing in the Testaments. However the items in following pictures proving that there still exist the uncivilized barbarians who want to tame the unbelievers as the way the Testament recommended.
The hidden mission of World Vision had been exposed after the Presidential Commission of inquiry on Non Governmental Organizations as proved beyond reasonable doubt that World Vision was an American funded manipulative Christian evangelical organization, which was surreptitiously trying to convert Sinhalese Buddhists to Christians through a program of work that was identified as “The Mustard Seed Project”.
As the pre-school poor children in the area targeted to Christianized, the patriotic organization called Thawalama organization based in Sri Lanka decided to make aware the danger to the pre-school teachers.
Preschool Strategy of non governmental organizations including World Vision based on Christian Evangelism.
On 30 th June 2002, several organizations came forward to help the Thawalama Development Foundation to fight the threat of manipulative Christian evangelism and among them the Helabima Organization needs special mention. The Helabima Organization contributed a sum of Rupees six hundred thousand (Approximately 6000 USD) to conduct fifteen seminars for preschool teachers from 4 th May 2002 to 8 th July 2006.
They spoke to preschool teachers on their responsibility to protect the valuable cultural heritage of our nation from being destroyed through surreptitious efforts made by evangelical Christian organizations such as World Vision.
It was significant to note that not only the Sinhalese pre-school teachers but also Tamil as well as Muslim pre-school teachers also participated in these seminars.
This joint project between the Helabima Organization and the Thawalama Development Foundation was so successful that it became difficult if not impossible for World Vision to implement their program of Christian evangelism in Horowupotana and Kebithigollewa Divisional Secretariat Areas.
But when you know for yourselves, these things are immoral, these things are blameworthy, these things are censured by the wise, these things when performed and undertaken conduce to ruin and sorrow, then indeed do you reject them.
When you know for yourselves, these things are moral, these things are blameless, these things are praised by the wise, these things when performed and undertaken, conduce to well-being and happiness, and then do you live and act accordingly.
