The Inner Wheel Club of Colombo gifted a Remed Bi-level Ventilator and a supply of NRB Masks to the newly set up national level Covid High Dependency Unit (HDU) at the Base Hospital Thabuththegama recently.
The third wave of the Covid -19 pandemic saw a considerable number of patients with the infection oxygen dependant and requiring breathing support. The 24 bedded HDU was set up at the Hospital to treat such patients. The equipment will benefit patients from all over Sri Lanka, as this is a National level HDU set up to treat Covid-19 patients.
The project was the Clubs’ first in the new Inner Wheel Year which began in July and was made possible with the generosity of its members in memory of the dearly departed members of the club.
