The Trinity College Social Service Union recently launched their first project of the term, the campaign ‘Drop a Coin in Aid of Thalassemic Patients’. It aims to collect sufficient funds to provide proper care for two patients of the disease, which is a genetic blood disorder that results in abnormal levels of haemoglobin in the patient’s body. The two patients are students in a rural area of Ankumbura.
The collection of funds for this worthy cause is achieved by placing collection boxes around the school, including each class for Grades 6 to 13, as well as in other locations such as the Trinity College Library and Administration block. Approximately 150 collection boxes have been utilized.
Any funds received in addition to the target amount will be used for other worthy causes such as this. We wish the Social Service Union success in their endeavour, and encourage all members of the Trinity family to contribute to this worthy cause!
