SD Tata Trust Aided Hospital in Chottanikara, near Mulanthuruthy is planning to set up an affordable cancer detection centre for which an ultrasound machine is one of the basic diagnostic tools. The project is to equip the Hospital with this diagnostic equipment.This will go a long way in eliminating the need to travel long distances to get the test done and that too at bare minimum cost to the patient.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
