Tush Wickramanayaka (fondly known as Dr Wick) – Chief Executive
a mother I can only imagine the pain that all parents and children have endured
in losing their loved ones. A young generation is now missing and another
generation is orphaned in our beautiful island paradise. Our lives will not be
complete if we do not come forward to help the victims and rebuild our country
and provide hope and comfort to all children of Sri Lanka.
Cutter (Gaza to his friends) – Trustee
of Cutter Contractors
watching the terrible footage of the aftermath, I decided something
constructive needed to be done. Initially I wanted to donate to a charity but
knowing which one was daunting as money gets lost through the system. We
started our own charity so that we can be accountable and responsible for every
penny raised. CHTAF was born and we are convinced it was the right choice with
every gesture of good will we receive. We will ensure the sad deaths of the
children around the world will not be forgotten or ignored.
John McIntyre (Commonly known as big Mac) – Trustee
and Gary are good friends of our family and when they took on the project of
the Children’s Hospital I was keen to help in any way possible. We have poor
people in this country, but they are still able to get help through our welfare
system. Throughout the third world being poor means “they get next to nothing”
and if our efforts mean that a better quality of life can be had, especially
for the children, then we should go for it. Also “ALL” of the monies raised by
this charity goes directly to the project not just 30p in the pound as with
some other charities.
Dr Dush Mital – Trustee
I am a Consultant in HIV Medicine and I have a huge interest in healthcare initiatives and development in resource-limited countries. I think what Tush and her team are doing is great and it is impressive that 5 years after the Tsunami disaster, the Charity is still going strong. I am truly honoured to be part of the team.
