Blind couple needs your help

A blind couple, Sanath Premalal and his wife Menaka Dilrukshi desperately need your help to pay for their medicine and transport to Colombo.

Premalal lost sight in one eye in an accident that occurred while playing tennis. He gradually lost sight in his other eye. Now he is completely blind. His wife Dilrukshi is completely blind in one eye as well. However, she has partial sight in her other eye. She has so far undergone 16 operations to try and correct her vision.

Dilrukshi travels 130km from her home in Balangoda to come to the Colombo Eye Hospital to obtain medication.
