Oxygen Unit Installation - Update - Delivery of HFNC and O2 Regulators 

Project Implementation - Status update 2:

Gas World has now finished the installation of 12 x O2 outlets at ward 4 and 2 x O2 outlets the preliminary care unit (PCU). The balance 6 are to be installed at ward 7; however there are already Covid patients there, hence, the hospital needs to move these patients out and thoroughly disinfect the ward before they can get Gas World to go in there. 

This may take a few days as per Dr. Eranga. But he's happy to have 14 up and running on Monday, 24th May 2021. 

We will go on Monday morning with the HFNC unit and the regulators and officially hand those over. 

The balance 13 regulators - originally scheduled to arrive on Saturday are delayed as the flight carrying it from UK has been delayed. Hopefully this also will be in hand by Monday

Stay tuned for next update by EOD Tuesday!



Dear friends your unstinted and generous support has taken us so much more closer to our target. A heartfelt thank you!🙏

The appeal continues for the balance Rs 800,000. Help us bring this project to a close with continued contributions and help us help those who are fighting for their breath.

RCCR Covid Relief


Friends, the Rotary Club of Colombo Regency (“RCCR”) is raising funds to meet a lifesaving need of the Base Hospital, Panadura, i.e. ensuring their critical covid+ patients get necessary oxygen supplies.
This hospital contacted RCCR concerning their urgent need for the related equipment, namely a wall oxygen supply unit, oxygen regulators and High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) units. The hospital’s appeal letters to RCCR will follow this post.
Wall oxygen supply units can support many critical covid+ patients at once and this capacity expansion was a top urgent requirement for this hospital. To enable this capacity expansion, twenty (20) oxygen regulators and three (3) HFNC units are also needed.
For the wall unit, the cost is Rs. 1.3 M inclusive of installation and RCCR raised the needed funds for this over the weekend. RCCR has now commenced its procurement process for the remaining equipment, namely the HFNC units and oxygen regulators.
To complete this project there is an urgent need for further funds amounting to Rs. 4.4 M to enable procurement and installation of the remaining equipment: HFNC units (3@Rs. 1.3M each) and oxygen regulators (20@Rs. 23,500/- each).

Site-Visit by RCCR

Rotarians Sepalika and Asha of RCCR visited Kalmunai in the Ampara District to get a first hand look at the Well Cleaning Process and speak with the project implementors, recipients and relevant authorities.

They were able to visit both '500 Well Cleaning' Projects of Stretchline & CandleAid.

The RCCR Members were bombarded with words of praise and acknowledgement towards the donors and cordinators of the Well cleaning project, which resulted in many of these un-fortunate victims of the dreadful floods being able to continue with their daily livelihoods and chores without the fear of water borne illnesses affecting their loved ones.
