Please join us and together we can share a meal and save a life. - Let us together raise funds to support lifesaving heart surgery for children with Congenital Heart Diseases.
 
  1. Around 3000 children are born every year with congenital heart defects in Sri Lanka
  2. That’s almost 8 in 1000 babies per year.
  3. More than 40% of these babies and children and over 60% of critically ill babies and children cannot get treatment on time because of a lack of facilities.
  4. All these children are referred to Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children (Only hospital with capability for Children Heart Surgery)
  5. 1500+ children die due to this lack of facilities.
Rotary Club of Kandy Sri Lanka and Rotary Club of Madras Coromandel have joined hands to provide surgery to approximately 100 children from the most vulnerable in the society due to their socio-economic status.  The children will come from around the nation. The operation will be carried out at the world-renowned Apollo Children's Hospital in Chennai Tamil Nadu South India. 
 
In addition, there will be a selection of medical Nurses and Doctors from Colombo Lady Ridgeway Hospital, Teaching Hospital Jaffna and Karapitiya trained at the Children's Hospital on paediatric cardiology.
 
The total budget for the project is AU $265,000.  Rotarians and Rotary Districts in India and Sri Lanka have pledged a total of AU $120,000.  Further AU $75,000 coming from The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.   We have a shortfall of AU $70,000.
 
Our goal is to raise AU $20,000 to make this project a reality and giving normal healthy life to 100 children.
 
This is one small step towards our goal.
