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. Recently it helped donate cardiac equipments worth £55,000 to Mannar and Kilinocchi Hospitals.

ABOUT US: Mayooran, Andrew and Khalda are cardiology doctors working in Harefield Hospital in UK. We have joined Assist RR to conduct 3 clinics in November 2018 in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka.

Event details

Free cardiology clinics in Sri Lanka

After a successful clinic in June 2017, Assist RR has been to Mannar 3 more times. They have helped 836 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. 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 now seeks your help to expand its free clinics to all three districts of Northern Province (Mullaitivu, Kilinocchi as well as Mannar). The four doctors who have joined together on this trip will run these clinics in the three districts at the same time for the first time ever! Assist RR guarantees that 100% of donations will be used for the project and not for any administrative costs.
