Doubling the capacity of Eye Clinic of the Jaffna Hospital: by donating necessary eye equipment. Cost: Rs. 12 Million
Following a request from Dr. Malaravan (Ophthalmologist) AMAF agreed to fund the eye clinic of Jaffna hospital. It is indeed a partnership project with Local Rotary club of Kellyville, NSW. AMAF funded 50% of the project.
The project will allow the staff to see double the number of patients each day and this will reduce the waiting list to days, NOT weeks or months. TOPCON company has installed 2 Slit Lamps and 1 Auto Refractory Machine in Jaffna Hospital. The YAG laser and other equipment will be delivered in August 2014. I thank and congratulate Haran for his efforts to combine Rotary club.
The opening ceremony of the new eye clinic is scheduled for 4/10/2014.
I would like to thank Dr. Abirami Yoganathan (collected funds through her Dance academy, ACT) and Johnny and team which ran AGE marathon and collected money for these 2 slit lamps.
