Senior citizen needs help

Mr. S. A. W. Fernando, a retired assistant cashier at Lake House, who has been living since 1987 in a free Elders Home at 204, Darley Road, Maradana, Colombo, requests public assistance to meet urgent expenses.

He met with a serious bus accident 60 years ago and the skin over the site of the fracture he suffered is now dead. The necessary medication is not available at the National Hospital and must be bought from a pharmacy.

Mr. Fernando who was born with normal hearing suffered from damaged ear drums due to an illness. Although he has been treated at the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic at the General Hospital, he suffers from a discharge time and again and is short of hearing and needs funds to purchase a hearing aid.

Any person wishing to assist him may credit payment to the National Savings Bank Account No.1-0002-01-6964-1.
