Emergency Relief Fund Raiser - Covid-19

The Kalubowila Hospital was in need of a new COVID ward to cater to the excess of patients due to the spike in COVID cases in 2021 3rd quarter and lack of facilities. Colombo Hub raised funds of 2.25 million LKR to purchase 10 ICU beds, 20 oxygen cylinders and 1 infusion pump to support the new ward in the hospital. Project took place from August 2021 - September 2021.
