“One Hand Can Heal Another 4.0”, another signature community service project by the Rotaract Club of SLIIT happened on the 8th of May 2018 at the Apeksha Cancer Hospital, Maharagama from 10am onwards. This project happened for the 4th consecutive time and was chaired by rotaractors Bhanuka, Navindu, Chamini, Chamika, and Umanga.
This project was initiated during the period of 2014-15. Main objective of this project was to donate the common necessities for the cancer hospital patients and donate king coconut water for the patients throughout the day of project. During 2014-15 we donated 500+ king coconuts. Carrying on the legacy during 2015-16 we donated 1000+ king coconuts and in the year 2016-17 we donated 1500+ king coconuts. This year we provided 800+ king coconuts scraped and filtered, not just for patients in all wards, but for everyone working at the cancer hospital as well. In addition to this, we also donated medicine worth Rs.30000 to the hospital.
Patients always praised us for this good cause because king coconut water is a good medication for patients undergoing chemotherapy at the National Cancel Hospital, Maharagama.
It was an experience to each and every one of us and all of us rotaractors were extremely happy with the excitement these beautiful souls displayed. May God bless them all.
