Baby Chathurya Imandi, diagnosed with a Ventricular Sepral Defect (VSD), has been advised to undergo immediate heart surgery, by Dr. Gamini Ranasinghe, Consultant Cardiac Surgeon of the Apollo Hospitals.

Her parents cannot afford the cost of Rs. 450,000 and the father, K. R. Sisira Kumara, who is enlisted with the Gemunu Watch of the Sri Lanka Army, appeals to the generous public to contribute to A/c No. 088200142860128 of the People's Bank (Any branch), to help save their child.

Consultant Nephologist Dr. A. L. M. Nazar of the National Hospital has recommended a kidney transplant operation on 15-year-old Chatura Dilshan of 390/1, Sama Mawatha, Biyagama, who is at End Stage kidney failure, and at present the patient is on regular haemodialysis.

The child's father is willing to donate a kidney but the pre and post transplant investigations and anti rejection therapy will cost approximately Rs. 250,000. Since the parents are unable to raise the necessary funds, they seek public assistance.
