Mrs. Danawathi
70 Years Old
Project Background
Mrs Danawathi is a widow. The daughter who lives with her, Asoka Jayalath, cannot go to work as she has to look after her mother and has a child of her own.  Her husband, Chaminda Prasanna, sells plastic goods at fairs and polas in the area and earns barely enough to maintain the family.  There is another daughter but she does not help.
Mrs Danawathi is over 70 and despite having had one knee replaced is unable to move around easily or even attend to her own personal work without assistance.  If left untreated she may become a complete invalid.
She is not entitled to a second donation from the President’s Fund as she did receive help for her first knee replacement and as this took place before the rules changed enabling assistance for both operations, she is disqualified on a technicality strictly speaking. The donation she did receive did not cover the entire cost and so the family had to beg and borrow while paying back the loans taken.

How you can help
The cost of the knee replacement system from Zodiac Medicals is 213,000 and despite all their difficulties the family has managed to find 65,000 but is seeking help to fund the deficit.
Charity Apple is hoping to raise Rs. 148,000/- to support Mrs. Danawathi to raise funds for her knee replacement.
