Donation to the Vavuniya Hospital, Sri Lanka

Global Medical Aid has donated large amounts of medical equipment to Vavuniya Hospital in Sri Lanka. In February, GMA received a request from both the leader of the District of Vavuniya and the chief physician at the hospital concerning lacking medical equipment. GMA succeeded in collecting some of the requested equipment, and it was transferred officially by Sugi Thiruchelvam to the hospital on 5th March 2010.
The donation is from Frederiksberg Hospital in Denmark, estimated to be worth 0.5 – 1 million kroners (i.e. 100,000 – 200,000 US $).
On 14th March 2010, the television channel DR1 brought a spot concerned with the donation in the program 21Søndag.
