Sent 2000 STEEM to Save Lives ! | SL-Charity Phase II
Under charity phase II, we already sent 70 720 LKR for a house renovation project under this proposal.
Due to the current critical pandemic situation of the country we decided to go for donations mostly. We could gather information about 3 very important and emergency matters.
- To a Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery
- To Planting a Wall Oxygen Supply System to ICU in Arachchikanda COVID19 Treatment Center
- To Purchase a PCR Machine to Embilipitiya Hospital
1. Funding an Urgent Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery
The patient is a 49 years old father who is diagnosed to have a Triple vessel Coronary Artery Disease with functional class II Angina. The cost for his surgery at Asiri Hospital Kandy has estimated as 1 000 000 LKR (5075.95 USD) and it is a large cost that can not be held by an average income family.
This was informed by @prasadi and @damithudaya and we sent 75 000 LKR directly to the patient's bank account and they verified they got the money. They thankful a lot and said they were worried about finding the money on time.
2. Donations for Newly Planting Wall Oxygen Supply System of ICU in Arachchikanda COVID19 Treatment Center
This hospital is a COVID19 treatment center that is located in Galle District. Critical COVID patients who have no facilities in general hospitals are transferred to this hospital's intensive care unit. The hospital is working for building an urgent wall oxygen supply system for their new ICU unit.
We contacted the chief medical officer Dr. Anuradha via phone and he said their current estimation will be 2M LKR and they need to implement this as soon as possible due to the current situation of the country.
This is what the doctor said always.
We sent money in two parts due to transaction limitations. If you willing to donate personally please contact us for account details.
3. Donating to Purchase a PCR Machine to Embilipitiya Hospital
Unfortunately, the results of PCR test results of Sri Lanka are delaying due to a lack of PCR machines. Embiliptiya Hospital's COVID19 treatment center is looking for support from the public to purchase a PCR machine.
Their estimated cost for a PCR machine is 6 M. As this is a very important requirement, we decided to fund them as well.
This was informed by @saman88 and @madhumunasinghe. We sent 25 000 LKR to the PCR fund of hospital. In Sri Lanka, there is a big delay of PCR test results from 3 days to 7 days and maybe more. This machine will do an impact to detect COVID patients of the area faster than they did early. And imagine how many lives we can save!
|Project||Amount in LKR|
|Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery||75 000|
|Wall Oxygen Supply System of ICU in Arachchikanda COVID19 Treatment Center||200 000|
|To Purchase a PCR Machine to Embilipitiya Hospital||25 000|
Total STEEM we sold out = 2177 STEEM
Total amount in LKR = 300 000 LKR
Currently, we have 1,680.718 STEEM remaining in the fund and we are working to re-fill the fund back.
Steem Sri Lanka is thankful to everyone who set beneficiaries to our charity fund, to everyone who voted on our posts, and to everyone who helped to this event even with a word.
That's great members of other countries also gave us a big contribution by setting beneficiaries to us. And you will live long and happy due to this good karma you did.
We wish this 2177 STEEM can save thousands of lives!
