A tale of Shenzhen Charity: 200 days of treatment for Sri Lankan boy

2015-June-18       Source: Szdaily.com

Dulan Nintharu is a lucky boy and his luck started in August last year when a medical team from Shenzhen sponsored his charity medical treatment in Sri Lanka. The little boy caught the attention of aid workers from Shenzhen who were visiting Sri Lanka.

Dulan with his mother in the hospital room.

But Li faced another problem when they attempted to explain the treatment plan for Dulan: the parents speak Sinhalese and only a little English and couldn’t communicate with doctors.

Local expats in Shenzhen offered to help when the Shenzhen Volunteer Association and the hospital started looking for a volunteer interpreter on social media.

Sam Fernando, a Sri Lankan living in Bao’an District, offered to help after seeing the story of the family on WeChat.

At an earlier interview with Shenzhen Daily, Fernando, who works at a technology company and has been living in Shenzhen for over 20 years, said he would help whenever the boy’s parents called him and he was happy to help a family from his own country.

The surgery on March 1 lasted for 14 hours and was a success.

After that, Dulan entered the recovery period. He needed physical rehabilitation and good nutrition for recovery. During that period, infection is also a risk.
