Rotary Club of Karamadai, RID 3203, and RC Wattala, RID 3220, Sri Lanka, sponsored the setting up of a high dependency ICU at the Colombo North Teaching Hospital in Ragama in the Gampaha district, 18km from Colombo, Sri Lanka. Rotary clubs of Kunnathur, Avinashi and Tirupur North, RID 3203, also participated in this project which RC Karamadai president and project chairman Magesh says, “is the first international service project of RID 3203 executed without a global grant.”
The ICU is installed at the maternal ward of the hospital and is estimated to save at least 2,000 mothers and newborns from critical situations annually.
IPDG B Elangkumaran, PDG A Karthikeyan and DGN Dhanasekar participated in the inauguration of the facility. RID 3220 IPDG Pubudu de Zoysa and DG Jerome Rajendram thanked the Indian Rotarians for the generous gesture. Magesh and RC Wattala president Jeyabalan signed the sister club agreement.
