Delegation from the Saudi Fund for Development visits Sri Lanka

Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to Sri Lanka, Khalid bin Hamoud Al-Kahtani received a delegation from the Development Evaluation Department of the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD) on Tuesday (Feb 27).

The visit aims to conduct a post-implementation evaluation of the Epilepsy Hospital and Health Centers project in the Republic of Sri Lanka.

The project was implemented by the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health at a cost of US$ 75 Million, with a contribution from the Saudi Fund for Development amounting to US$ 32 Million.

The project was declared opened in December 2017, and it is noteworthy that the Epilepsy Hospital consists of 08 floors with a capacity of 242 beds within the national hospital complex in the capital, Colombo.

The hospital also meets the increasing health needs and provides services for treating epilepsy and convulsions resulting from an increase in the brain’s electrical energy.
