On the 4th February, 2013, when Sri Lanka celebrated its Independence day, Leo Club and Lions Club of Negombo partnered with HFHSL and held a very much needed Medical Camp for the home-owners at Pathayamwatte village, Negombo (Rebuild Sri Lanka Site).

Four doctors from the Negombo Base Hospital (a government hospital) volunteered their time and services for the people of this village. One of the doctors was an eye specialist and the others were general physicians.

Nearly 100 patients received medical consultation on this day. There were 45 patients who required spectacles and it was arranged that these would be distributed on the 4th of March after ordering them as per the eye specialist’s prescriptions. The Lions Club of Negombo was very generous to donate these.

All the medication that was prescribed was purchased by the Leo Club of Negombo and distributed to the patients on the same day.

Habitat wishes to express special thanks to our vice president Mr. Lakshan Madurasinghe who facilitated this program and also participated in the organizations of the Medical Camp.

We are also grateful to the Lions and Leo Club of Negombo who continue to support Habitat in various ways, to help uplift the lives of the underprivileged.
