Grants Awarded to CHRF by One Kind Act
12 July 2021: One Kind Act feel immense gratitude towards our very loyal and supportive Sponsors - Calcott Services for Children – who have recently risen to their call on social responsibility and made very generous donations to Causes we support. One such Cause is CHRF. Their donation of £5,000 will procure 2 closed centrifuges for storing blood samples of Covid patients at the grossly under-funded Mullaitivu Hospital in Sri Lanka; the samples otherwise get contaminated and cause infection to laboratory staff.

provide new equipment and ongoing support for 2 years for the new
preschool facilitated by OKA in 2018.
