Mar 13, 2011 5:30:46 AM - itnnews.lk

The interns from Sri Jayawardenapura hospital and medical students have launched a programme to provide facilities for patients in the Hendala leprosy hospital.

They launched the programme by providing clothes and food to the patients in the hospital. The aim of the programme is to draw public attention towards the leprosy hospital in Hendala which is believed to be one of the oldest hospitals in Asia and to demonstrate that leprosy patients are not rejected by the society. Duty Officer at the hospital Dr. Darshana Mohotti said that such programmes are required to boost the morale of the patients.
