"Timeless Classics"


The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami affected 35,322 people in Sri Lanka. Of this number several thousand lived along the Eastern seaboard of Sri Lanka. The Batticaloa Teaching Hospital was over crowded by the vast number of injured, maimed and traumatised victims seeking urgent medical attention for their injuries and predicament. The staff at the hospital worked tirelessly for days with help from local and foreign volunteers but the lack of resources, medical supplies, operating theatres and equipment made the task very difficult and exposed a dire need for modern well equipped emergency and accident hospitals in the poorer parts of Regional Sri Lanka.

The Foundation Supporting a National Trauma Service in Sri Lanka was formed in 2011 to make the Government of Sri Lanka and the Ministry of Health aware of the urgent need to improve Public Hospital A&E Trauma facilities throughout the country and Batticaloa was chosen by the Foundation as the hospital that needed to be supported urgently. This followed the successful construction of an A&E Trauma Unit at the Karapitiya Hospital, also pioneered by Australians.

This Foundation has reached an agreement with the Sri Lankan Government (Ministry of Health) to provide the first US$2 million donation towards a US$6 million cost of a three storey, three operating theatres, 86 bed male/female ward A&E modern facility. Work has commenced and completion is expected end December 2017. Your presence will help our fund raising efforts as approximately 50% of the cost of the ticket will go towards the fund. We hope you will support us by attending the “Timeless Classics” concert on Sunday 12th March, 2017 at the BESEN CENTRE in BURWOOD.
