This is a letter I received from Dr Atapattu( chairperson/medical students
financial assistance scheme) from Colombo Medical Faculty.
This is the latest update re. the offer of regular funds to 2 deserving
medical students from the combined donations you all made in July 2010.
So far the monthly payments of Rs.2000.00/student is made from the interest
income with the total capital continuing to accrue interest at variable
The 2 students will continue to get the financial assistance monthly for a
total of 5 years(till they complete their medical student career) and from
the interest collated, 2 more students will receive similar funds every 5
years( and recurring).
You must be pleased with your efforts. Some of you may consider further
efforts to improve medical education in Sri Lanka in what ever way we can.
It may be worth thinking of a last will provision if not already done.
If you need any more details please let me know.
