Heal them with peaceful spiritual practice

We understand cancer can affect people physically, emotionally and financially. We’re here to help.

We are here to talk things through with you; help sponsor cancer diagnosis, discuss treatment options and generally do whatever we are able to do to support you and your family through your illness. 

Most patients seen have inadequate pain relief and not aware of the options available to them, either over the counter or on prescription. The commonest cancers seen are oral and breast cancer and the nurses care for these patients with providing pain relief as well as relieving the anxiety of family members. The nurses have been especially trained at The Dental clinic at Jaffna Hospital in caring for oral cancer patients, as it is so common. Nutrition was also a problem with many of the patients with oral lesions and the nurses provide nutritional supplements.

Another common problem with several patients out of hospital is leg ulcers and the nurses take care of regular dressings and teach family members how to continue this.

Fortunately currently there are two Cancer Specialist’s (Dr. Rajasooriyar and Dr Indranath) working in the Jaffna Cancer Hospital, Tellipalai. He is able to treat a significant number of patients under difficult circumstances with relatively limited facilities.
