Cancer doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t respect age, gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status or a healthy life style. Support and care change lives and there are many ways we can make a difference
Sri Lanka has been experiencing an increase in the number of incidences of cancer, from over 16,500 newly diagnosed cancer patients in 2008 to over 25,800in 2013. As a result, the availability of proper cancer care facilities has become crucial, especially to improve awareness and detection of cancer. Trail’s facility in Jaffna has been a blessing to many and no doubt the proposed facility in Galle will help thousands more.
Trail is a 670km walk along the length of Sri Lanka in aid of cancer treatment and promoting unity.
Trail 2011 made possible the funding for the first Trail hospital in Jaffna which was a combined effort of all communities in Sri Lanka. The Galle project looks to be no different.
The Sri Lanka and Australia Chamber of Commerce endeavors to help raise AUS 500,000 towards Trail2016 in Australia and invites all overseas Sri Lankans and Friends of Sri Lanka in Australia, to unite in the spirit of giving to support those fight against this deadly disease.
