Hand in hand is one of the signature projects conducted by the Rotaract Club of University of Moratuwa which plays a major role in helping cancer affected children mainly in Sri Lanka to uplift their physical and mental health. In here/As Rotaractors, we are going to accredit little patients to live peacefully with their inner minds. Not only little ones, but also we are functioning in the assisting of elder patients too. Mainly, our programmes are being centred to Apeksha Hospital – Maharagama as well as now we are planning to patronize cancer sufferers in Sri Lanka cancer hospital – Karapitiya. Here our main objective is to support the Sri Lankan victims of this deadly disease as a nation.
For the process of continuing above all steps; we used to sell seasonal greeting cards during the periods of Vesak and Christmas within the university premises as well as to the general public. Although there is a universal pandemic all around the world, we have faced many challenges with physical fundraising methods.s Hence we started/have chosen online options (like social media/email campaigns, peer-to-peer fundraising, crowdfunding, e-cards, virtual movie nights etc.) to strengthen our financial stability in the path to assist victims in our context.
As a crew, we would like to invite you to hold your hands with us in continuing this project/such projects to support our little cancer affected children as well as elders in our country who are medicating at both Apeksha hospital and Karapitiya hospital.
Rotaract Club of University of Moratuwa is leading the Hand in Hand project to give a helping hand to cancer patients and renovate hospital premises and install new technologies to defeat cancer quickly.
To give a helping hand and care for cancer patients and their loved ones to seek treatment and develop a positive mindset to fight the disease. And to become the strongest ally to conquer cancer.
