A Donation To A Worthy Cause
Colombo Court Hotel & Spa recently donated 20 bed sheets and 20 pillow cases to Ward 2, at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Angoda.
The IDH is Sri Lanka’s only hospital that specializes in treating people with infectious diseases. As the disease has its peak seasons, so does the hospital, sometime filled to the point where finding beds are an issue. When infectious diseases are not running rampant, this government hospital opens itself up to treating patients with other ailments. With Dengue being the rage these days, IDH is finding it quite difficult to keep up with the demand for beds and extra linen needed to meet the turnover.
After conversation with Dr. Nishadhi Ranasinghe, we were able to donate 20 bed sheets and 20 pillowcases to Ward 2 – the Pediatric ward, at IDH. These will be used specifically for the said ward, while being distributed to other wards when needed.
We are extremely glad that this opportunity came our way. With all the environment and health issues at large these days, we hope that this contribution could ease at least the smallest burden off the shoulders of these wonderful people trying to make a change in this world.
