Building Wash Rooms for Soldiers Who Have Suffered Permanent Disability

Currently there are a number of soldiers rehabilitated at Ranaviru Sevana, Ragama waiting to return home to rejoin their families. However, most of these valiant soldiers have suffered permanent disabilities and require disable friendly wash room facilities at their residences in order to get back to their homes. Many of these soldiers do not have access to suitable wash room and water facilities. Ranaviru Fund has initiated a project to provide suitable wash room and water facilities for the soldiers recommended by the Ranaviru Sevana authorities.

We have received names of 9 such soldiers from different parts of the country and have selected 3 of them in Anuradhapura district to pilot the project. Following are the latest picture updates from the first 3 wash rooms being built in Anuradhapura district. Click each of the photo to find more details and photos of each wash room.

We have identified several soldiers currently based at Ranaviru Sevana and other Regimental Rehabilitation centres who are deprived of the opportunity of joining their families due to the lack of disabled friendly wash room facilities at their own homes. In phase 4 of our ongoing projects we are aiming to build wash rooms for these 9 soldiers.

Corporal Mahinda Re-gains Eye Sight after 18 years

Corporal Mahinda Eidirisooriya lost both hands and both eyes in a route clearing operation in 1991 when he was only 20 years of age. He met his loving wife after the injury and now they have two young sons aged 14 and 5. Mahinda who has been blind for the past 18 years has not seen his children nor his wife.

  With the new limb climbing steps is like A B C

He was examined by Dr. Rajesh Fogla at the Lanka Hospitals and was advised that he could regain sight in one eye by undergoing a Boston Keratopathesis surgery. The surgery was estimated to cost Rs.250,000/-. Mahinda secured funding from the Army and the Ranaviru Seva Authority and approached us to raise the balance. Ranaviru Fund with the generous help of five donors raised the balance 137,000/=

Mahinda underwent surgery on 01st-September-2010, and three weeks later, several members of the Ranaviru Fund visited Mahinda at his residence. Mahinda described to us that he’s noticing an improvement everyday. He told us with excitement that he could identify the shape of the grills when the morning sunlight comes through the window into his room.

Mahinda anxiously waits the healing of surgical wounds to see his loving wife and two sons for the very first time.
