My Charity

I have been involved with the CCC Foundation from it's inception in 2003. As the Secretary of the CCC it has been a great fulfilment and a blessing to my life to be involved in such a worthy cause.

The Courage Compassion Commitment (CCC) Foundation is a not for profit organisation based in Sri Lanka and Australia to provide services in the areas of cancer and mental wellbeing. CCC Foundation was founded in 2003 to assist the National Cancer Institute in Maharagama, Sri Lanka (NCI) to provide support for children fighting cancer.

CCChouse is a 188-bed Cancer Transit home for outpatients at the NCI. It’s a similar concept to the Ronald MacDonald Houses in Australia. The CCChouse is the largest facility of its kind for children and their carers as well as adult outpatients with cancer in Sri Lanka. Phase 1 of the CCChouse consisting of 100 beds was completed in September 2010 and is currently in operation. The Phase 2 will be completed by end of the year.

I was in Sri Lanka last year and visited the CCC House and was so happy to see what a difference it has made to the cancer outpatients by providing a comfortable environment to be in during and after their treatment.
