The DOT Charitable Foundation has donated AUS 4,250.00 worth High Nasal Cannula Oxygen Delivery Machine to the Paediatric Unit Base Hospital. The machine was handed over on 17th of December by DOT represented Kamal Thilakarathna and Indika Wijayasuriya to the team headed by Consultant Paediatrician Dr Anoma Abeygunawardena. The machine is purchased from Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Pty Limited Australia.

The Gampaha Base Hospital is the main hospital in Gampaha district of Western Province.

Consultant Patrician Dr Anoma Gunwawardena’s message- This machine is simple but very effective equipment to give breathing support. There is severe shortage of ICU beds. As a result of that critically ill patients die in the wards. If we use this machine early in the illness it prevents patients going in to respiratory failure. So, it is a lifesaving machine.

Thank you all for your great generosity and hard work, as without you this would not have been possible.
