About

ABOUT ASSIST RR: Assist Rehabilitation and Renaissance (Assist RR) is a registered charity in the United Kingdom and a registered Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Sri Lanka. It was formed in December 2012 to help raise funds for war-affected individuals in the Northern and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka. Amongst its various humanitarian projects (http://assistrr.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Assist-RR-Projects-161116.pdf), it has implemented notable healthcare ventures, including that of building three medical wards (male, female & pediatric) in Puthukidiyurupu Hospital in Mullaitivu district and funding more than 2200 cataract surgeries in Sri Lanka, mainly in the north and east of Sri Lanka. ABOUT ME: I am a cardiology registrar in the final year of my training in UK. On a recent trip to Sri Lanka, I met up with the health officials and have identified this project as viable and believe this will make a definite impact on the local population's healthcare. We had conducted two clinics in June and November 2017 when we helped over 450 patients. On my trip in February 2018 I saw and helped a further 125 patients. We seek your help to perform this every 4 months.

Event details

Free echocardiogram & cardiology clinic Sri Lanka

After a successful clinic in June 2017, during which 255 patients of all ages were seen by the volunteer cardiologists, the second clinic took place in November 2017. The patients would otherwise have had to wait months for an appointment and travel 100s of kilometres to see a cardiac specialist, often involving an overnight admission to Mannar hospital and inter-hospital transport the next morning. During this clinic, the doctors assessed 200 patients. Patients with heart conditions were given follow up appointments with a general medical physician in Mannar District General Hospital. Others were referred to the nearest paediatric cardiologist, interventional cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeon for further evaluation of their symptoms with view to an interventional procedure or surgery.

Assist RR seeks funds to support this project and also for the purchase of a new echocardiogram machine to be used in other areas in the Northern Province. It guarantees that 100% of donations will be used for the project and not for any administrative costs.  Further details: http://assistrr.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Echo-Cardiogram-Clinic-Mannar-June-2017-Report.pdf
