Breast Cancer Project:
$12,000 worth of surgical equipment was donated to Kurunegala Teaching Hospital, Cancer Unit, to be used for breast cancer surgeries. Our aim achieved by this project was to facilitate breast cancer treatment in rural areas of Sri Lanka for early diagnosis and treatment to enhance life expectancy of women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Prosthetic Limb Project:
$20,837 was used to provide eight childhood bone cancer survivors with prosthetic limbs.
The prosthetics cost from Rs.356,250 to Rs.418,000 each.
The following pictures are posted with permission of the children and their parents, whose lives we managed to touch with new hope.
Diapers for Pediatric Cardiac Surgery ICU and post surgical unit:
Cardiac surgeries at Lady Ridgeway pediatric hospital, which is the National Children’s hospital in Sri Lanka are performed free of charge. But these children need diapers during their post operative period. Often parents are not able to afford diapers for these children which are not provided by the hospital.
With the help of our member contributions including Enoka Abeyratne, we are donating diapers worth $ 1,000/.
