Support for Dr. Arulnithy (Batti hospital cardiologist) and his patients
AUSLMAT will visit Dr. Arulnithy at the cardiac unit on Monday 3rd July. We take cardiac catheters, stents, etc. to him on each of our medical mission visits. Puvithra from Mullativu will come for review when we are there in July 2017. She had an Atrial Septal Defect closed some years ago and has recently complained of shortness of breath again. Her mother and father come down with her and they have to stay overnight in Batti after a long trip by bus. We are grateful to a generous donor who will fund their transport and accommodation.
Dr. Arulnithy is the only cardiologist at the Batti hospital and we are happy to have supported him for some years.
