Our Current Plan includes the following:

To establish a Centre of Excellence for Diabetic care sponsored by donors. During the last three decades of conflict U.K charities such as Ratnam Foundation and MIOT U.K have supported these clinics including medicines for patients. We would very much appreciate any offers by sponsors from anywhere in the world to achieve this dream of establishing a Center of Excellence for Diabetic care. The current estimate suggests, that to fully renovate and refurbish, and provide new equipment in the building requires UK £. 85 to 90K/US $.120 to 125 K. It is to be managed by :

  1. Consultant Diabetologist Dr.Aravinthan from JTH.
  2. Nurse led Health education and Lifestyle advice
  3. Screening for Diabetes
  4. Detection of Complications –Cardiovascular Eye and Renal disease
  5. Eye- Care

Imaging Department:

Digital X-ray Imaging
The digitalization process to convert the current X-ray facility to the new equipment- model Knoica Minolta Digital Cassette Radiography System needs SL Rs.3 million (equivalent U.K £.14K, US $17K approximately) .

 

Ultra sound Imaging
The USS in MCH is over 10years old and needs replacement for more accurate and better Images. The new equipment-Model Xario 100 is available in Sri Lanka costing SL Rs. 6million approximately. This would be the equivalent of U.K £.29K/US $.35K approximately at current rates. We would be most grateful for any sponsors, either individuals/ as a group/an organization who can help us.

 

Echocardiography Imaging:
Consultant Cardiologist Dr.P.Lukshman has requested an up-to-date ECHO scanner because the old one has aged and provides poor quality images. He has recommended model APLIO-300. This would be approximately SL Rs. 9million, equivalent to U.K £.45K/US $.58K approximately at current rates.
