We are happy to announce that yesterday (04th May 2022) we delivered a much needed life saving Nitric Oxide cylinder to the premier national maternity hospital at Castle Street. Dr Saman Kumara, Consultant Neonatologist and President Perinatal Association of Sri Lanka and advisor to the Save A Dream Team accepted it on the behalf of the hospital. Rotary Clubs of Hills -Kellyville Inc, Rotary Club of Colombo South Sri Lanka and Save A Dream Team partnered on this vital project.
We are negotiating with local suppliers to purchase another 20 cylinders. The country needs desperately 90 – 100 cylinders. Unfortunately supply of cylinders are encountering a global supply chain squeeze and may delay shipment by 10 – 12 weeks putting more stress on available cylinders in the country. We are making every effort to fast track the importation of the cylinders. This is a very critical time to save lives.
We are thankful to our donors who have joined hands with us on this project.
