The MIOT-Wales has been continuing to donate money to quite a number of charitable good causes. The Vavuniya General hospital which was in the war zone and was badly affected, as a result, has now gradually been returning to normality. Their service to public had been hampered for a long time. We received a request from the doctors, working for the Special Care Baby unit in Vavuniya for aid. The unit is in desperate need of equipments and instruments. This is the unit covering a vast area in and ar0tmd Vavuniya. The areas covered by this unit for the purpose of delivering the (special) care for pre-mature babies include Mullaitivu (about 55 miles from Vavuniya) to one end and to Mannar (about 50 miles) to the other.
We pledged to help out this unit. We therefore staged a cultural event, called, Kalaikathambam at a large scale to raise the fund. We managed to raise a good sum, as good as £10,000. Dr Vipulendran has been involved with liaising with the doctors from the above unit and has very recently paid a visit in person to the unit. The aid is expected to be spent on purchasing such important items as Incubator, Infant warmer pulse oximeter etc.
