The assistance from various sponsors, well-wishers, and the great efforts of our Association members.
In order to help our fellow Sri Lankans living in rural areas who are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease, which is considered to be aggravated due to lack of clean drinking water, we installed this water tank at the premises of Sri Ashokarama Temple in Anuradhapura, Periyakulama, Siwalakulama (35 Kms from Anuradhapura) with the guidance of Professor Channa Jayasumana (MBBS,PhD, FRCP Edin – Head, Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, Rajarata University, Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka) and the assistance of ChemeeRo Pty Ltd.
