Batticaloa in Sri Lanka had suffered tremendously through a 30-year civil war and has had more than its fair share of natural disasters. The war left behind over 30,000 war widows and families who had lost their houses, land, and livelihood. This community faced another devastating loss when the 2004 tsunami decimated its shores and coastal villages, affecting the area and its residents gravely. The loss of lives and destruction has been well documented. The entire district of Batticaloa is continuously exposed and affected by monsoon floods and tropical cyclones and remains vulnerable and in continuous need of humanitarian support. The Sri Sathya Karuna Nilayam Foundation, a non for profit organisation has been at the heart of providing much needed ongoing care and support to the community. It strives to provide Healthcare, Education and Social Care entirely free of cost to the community whilst also working towards the upliftment of marginalized women through several programs and skills training to provide them with stability, financial independence and ultimately, provide them and their families with a better standard of living.
The Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Super Speciality Hospital, is a state of the art 75 bed hospital which is well underway to provide the much needed solution. Health In Kind Australia has partnered with the Sri Sathya Sai Karuna Nilayam Foundation and Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani hospital to provide ongoing development and treatment to the community in need through free healthcare treatment. The Hospital will be home to five specialties and world class equipment and care. At an estimated construction cost of close to USD 3.6 million, The Foundation expects the hospital to be amongst the best in Asia with the unique feature of providing free medical health care.
This 56-acre property will serve the people through Medical Care, Education and social upliftment, completely free of charge. One floor of our hospital will be a surgical ward for infants and children suffering from Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). This hospital will serve as a beacon of hope for desperate mothers and fathers with sick children whose economic status removes private hospitals as an option, forcing them to settle for waiting lists at government hospitals for surgery.
Together with basic health care, the hospital will offer five specialties. They are: Ophthalmology, Dentistry, Gastroenterology, Gynecology and Pediatrics.
