We are representing TrailSL Australia
Sri Lanka has been experiencing an increase in the number of incidences of cancer, from over 16,500 newly diagnosed cancer patients in 2008 toover 25,800in 2013. As a result, the availability of proper cancer care facilities has become crucial, especially to improve awareness and detection of cancer. Trail's facility in Jaffna has been a blessing to many and no doubt the proposed facility in Galle will help thousands more.
The Sri Lanka and Australia Chamber of Commerce invites all overseas Sri Lankans and Friends of Sri Lanka in Australia to come together to create awareness about cancer and to show solidarity for those who are fighting against the deadly disease, and to help raise funds to ensure everyone gets that fighting chance. Over a period of 2 years, from 2017 - 2019, SLACC endeavors to help raise up to AUD 500,000 for TrailSL 2016.
SLACC is a partner for Project B057N - Aussie Ward Karapitiya Hospital, Sri Lanka with Global Development Group (ABN 57 102 400 993) Tax deductible receipts for gifts over $2 with a preference for this project will be issued by Global Development Group for project B057N Excess funds may be directed to another approved activity.
