Colombo Court Hotel & Spa Donates To The Idh
Due to unprecedented increase in the Dengue cases, Colombo Court Hotel & Spa, a Luxury Boutique hotel in Colombo responded to a SOS call by the children hospital in Angoda for bed sheets and pillows, since they were having huge shortage and could not accommodate all the kids suffering from Dengue due to lack of fresh Linen. Colombo Court Hotel & Spa donated bed sheets and pillow cases to Ward 2, at the Children Infectious Disease Hospital in Angoda.
The IDH, Sri Lanka’s only hospital that specializes in treating people with infectious diseases- As the disease has its peak seasons, so does the hospital, sometimes filled to the point where finding beds for patients is a challenge to the hospital administration. 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. IDH with capacity of some 50 beds has now more than 100 Dengue children which could not be admitted due to lack of Linen.
After a conversation with Dr. Nishadhi Ranasinghe, Colombo Court Hotel & Spa volunteered to donate a considerable amount of Linen 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. This will increase the capacity of the Hospital to admit more children suffering from Dengue.
“We are extremely happy that we were able to get in touch with Dr. Ranasinghe,” “With all the health and environmental issues currently at large, we hope that this contribution could ease even the smallest burden off the shoulders of a group of people who are trying to make a positive change in this world.” We as one of the leading hotels in Colombo will not shy away from such calls by the community in future as well, said Mr. Roshan George, General Manager of Colombo Court Hotel & Spa.
