Poor eye patients were taken to Kandy by the Trincomalee district branch of the Sri Lanka Red Cross with the assistance of Eastern Human Economic Development (EHED) organization.

The appointment of an eye surgeon has become a blessing for several hundreds eye patients, especially for poor,who visit Trincomalee general hospital daily from rural areas in the district, civil sources said.

Medical Superintendent Dr.Ms Gowshi Gnanagunalan with the assistance of health department authorities has created a separate ward for eye patients.

Trincomalee Hospital Committee led by its President Dr.K.Hemachchandra came to the rescue of hospital authorities to furnish the newly carved out eye ward. Several businessmen and philanthropists donated steel cabinets, tables and chairs on the request of hospital committee, medical sources said.

'' Dream has come true at last,'' said Dr.Ms Gowshi Gnanagunalan addressing a special meeting of the Trincomalee Hospital Committee, which was held Wednesday. Later at an event at the hospital premises, philanthropists donated furniture.

The Trincomalee hospital was constructed nearly hundred years ago during the colonial days.
