Mobile Eye and Medical Camp conducted by HelpAge Sri Lanka at St. Coombs Estate, Talawakelle 29 August, 2023
Mobile eye and medical camp were arranged to the elders, workers and their family members of St. Coombs Estate and TRI, Talawakelle with the aid of HelpAge Sri Lanka. The Estate Medical Practitioner, Superintendent of St. Coombs, Public Relations Officer of TRISL and staff of the health centre at St. Coombs Estate facilitated the mobile eye and medical camp. Over 125 elders were benefited with the general medical assessments and mobile eye clinic. Over 100 of them and three elders with acute hearing problems were offered spectacles and hearing aids respectively. The needy patients will be referred to appropriate hospital treatments as well.
TRISL is grateful to Mr. Chaminda de Silva and medical professionals of HelpAge Sri Lanka for the exceptional opportunity given to the TRISL in receiving medical and eye clinic facilities at the St. Coombs door premises. Also, Agricultural Economics Division of the TRISL will monitor the impact of medical and eye clinic facilities given to the beneficiaries in their work productivity. The same program will be conducted at Ragala estate, Nuwara Eliya on 30th August as a follow up welfare event supporting estate worker communities anticipating revival of elders to return to their skilled work at tea estates.
