SpareTime Foundation has pledged to support the Indira Cancer Trust by sponsoring children living with cancer and their families. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed last week at the Trust Office.
As SpareTime Global Limited’s educational initiative through the ‘Sponsor A Child in Sri Lanka’ program, the foundation has taken the responsibility to sponsor children’s education and help their families with essentials and medical requirements.
The foundation decided to engage in this cause as it will be a relief for families with rising expenses. While education is a top priority, a child’s well-being is highly important. SpareTime Global Limited Senior Management has already committed to sponsoring 20 children with cancer as these children face many difficulties and they are also planning to increase this number in the next few months. The Senior Management of SpareTime Global wanted to initiate the first sponsorships for the children, which will encourage donors to support this worthy cause and make help the families make ends meet.
“SpareTime foundation will reach out to donors for funds and we hope within the next two months about 50 to 60 children with Cancer who have been identified from Indira Cancer Trust will be sponsored”, said Chief Operations officer, Asiri Hewapathirane
Chairperson/ Trustee of Indira Cancer Trust Dr Lanka Jayasuriya Dissanayake, “This is a great collaboration at this time of need and supports the children with cancer with essentials and medical needs and is part of the Stand By a Child program (SBC) of the Indira Cancer Trust. We are indeed thankful to the SpareTime foundation for this initiative”.
