Thank you and an update

By Suranjani Wickremeratne | President - Tarana Foundation

Dear Donors,

Wish you a year filled with happiness, love, peace, good health and prosperity !

We take this opportunity to thank you once again for your kind contribution to support hospital and medicine shortages in Sri Lanka.

During the last couple of months, we have supported a couple of young girls on their individual requirment.

A school going girl was diagnosed with scoliosis and she had to undergo an operations where a device was inserted to straighten her spine. We supperted to purchase the orthopedic device. The parents were ever so grateful as otherwise it would have been a huge challenge for them to purchase the item.  

The other girl was suffering form a cancer in her knee, and she was requested to take a course of injections. Each injection was Rs. 125,000/-. We supported her by purchasing two injections. After her course of injections, she underwent surgery to remove the tumour, but currently awaits reconstruction of the leg to enable her to walk. She is required to raise LKR 2 million approx. for this surgery.

We also supported a medical camp organised by the Lions Club of Colombo Host. The medical camp treated low-income earners in the area. The services provided were doctor consultation, diabetes testing, eye testing, awareness session, provided eye glasses and provided medicine (general) and viatmins. At this camp, there were 98 doctor consultations carried out, 197 were provided free spectacles, and 125 were tested for diabetes and BMI. A total cost of Rs. 250,000/- approximately was incurred by us, on medicine and the services provided by the Lions Gift of Sight Hospital in Panadura.  

Also, a donation of Rs. 150,000/- was made to the Lions Club of Colombo Host to perform cataract surgeries for those low-income earners who are unable to pay for such surgeries. The cataract surgeries are performed at the Lions Gift of Sight Hospital in Panadura.

We will be supporting many such requirements of those who are required to undergo medical treatment for life-threatening conditions, or to have an improved lifstyle, and are unable to fund them on their own. 

Your generous donation made a difference in those lives that we supported. 

May all your noble aspirations be fulfilled.

Gratefully yours,

Project Team Handling the Hospital shortages and Medical Needs
