In such a backdrop, the students, parents and the teachers of SRI LANKAN SCHOOL, MUSCAT taking to roads on July 31 at 3.00 p.m. at the Independence Square, Colombo for a charity walk to the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children to raise proceeds for the Little Hearts Project organized by the Paediatric Cardiac Unit of the Lady Ridgeway Hospital in Colombo.
This initiative is powered under the blessings of Sri Lanka College of Pediatricians-the apex professional body of childcare in Sri Lanka- with the aim of building a new facility of cardiac and critical care complex to provide timely treatment to all the needy children.
