PTK Paediatric Ward – Completed & Handed Over

Following our appeal for building the first floor paediatric ward at Puthukudiyiruppu (PTK) hospital, Children’s Hunger Relief Fund (CHRF) and Dr Philomina Karthigesalingam responded positively and have managed to raise enough funds to carry out this project. Dr Philomina successfully completed her sponsored walk and managed to raise nearly £6000. CHRF made an appeal to their friends and families and raised nearly £12,000. Assist RR is funding the balance needed to complete this project. Further to another appeal, UK Medical Institute of Tamils (MIOT) has donated £8300 towards providing furniture and essential medical equipment to this ward. The construction work had been completed and the ward was handed over by Mullaithivu GA Mr Vethanayagan to the hospital on 04 Dec 2014. Assist RR would like to express its gratitude to CHRF, MIOT and Dr Phil on behalf of people of PTK for their selfless efforts towards assisting people affected by the war.
