Campaign has ended
Doctors at the Royal College Doctors’ Association (RCDA) made a donation worth Rs 100000/-to the Orthodontic Unit at Lady Ridgeway Hospital (LRH) for children on February 21st . The donation was handed over to Dr. Sriyani Basnayaka, Consultant Clinical Orthodontist by Principal Royal College Upali Gunasekara, at the ortho-dental clinic at LRH.
This donation will benefit 100 children with very significant upper jaw protrusions that if left untreated, would affect them aesthetically and functionally. Waiting in queues for years would have reduced responsiveness of the jaw bones to the functional appliance therapy. Early diagnose and prevention would avoid long term treatments that are expensive and at times not effective.
President of RCDA Dr. AjithThennakoon, Asst. President RCDA Dr. Dasun Perera and members of Royal College Union and were present at this donation.
