We commenced the program in November 2015 with 28 patients. Currently we have 58 patients with life limiting illness receiving much needed sponsorship. Sadly, during the past 2.5 years 11 patients have succumbed to the disease and one was lucky enough to have a transplant and recovering from the disease.
Donate Patient and Family Sponsorship
Providing financial protection and medical care to the families of CKDu and cancer patients.
As you all know the project is managed and administered by our Program Coordinator Tania Wickramasinghe in Sri Lanka, who keeps a close contact with all the patients in our database. There are patients who does not fail to contact Tania each month to thank the foundation for the generosity. They use this money to travel back and forth to the hospital and for their medication.
The Shanthi nurses continue to visit these patients at their own homes once in two months. When the need arises, the patients contact the nurses to get advice so that they could manage their pain / symptoms.
