Cornerstone ceremony of REVIVE Liver Project
Colombo North Centre for Liver Diseases

Foundation stones of the newly designed building of Colombo North Centre for Liver Diseases (CNCLD) were laid on the 16th of September 2021, at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya.
CNCLD is an existing clinical, teaching and research center run by the academic staff of Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya along with the health staff of Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, since 2011. With the growing needs to cater for the increasing number of children and adults with liver diseases in the country, the team has identified the necessity of having a well-equipped, new building to offer better services to the country.
The proposed building is a state-of-the-art facility of 3-storeys with an area of 24000 square feet. This will include state-of-the-art operating theatres, an intensive liver care unit, a laboratory and a research area. This facility will become the country’s leading center for liver diseases, treating patients, training students and conducting research.
The university will partner with the government and private organizations to complete the project. A public fundraising and awareness campaign named ‘REVIVE Liver Project’, will be conducted by the team to support the project.
Mr Sudila Pahasara Bandara (final year medical student), Dr Liyanage Ranaweera (Director, Colombo North Teaching Hospital), Prof Nilanthi De Silva (The Vice-Chancellor, University of Kelaniya), Prof Janaki Hewavisenthi (Dean, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya), Prof Janaka De Silva (Chair Professor in Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya), Prof Ranil Fernando (Chair Professor in Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya) and Prof Rohan Siriwardana (Clinical lead of CNCLD) laid the foundation stones.  There was no formal ceremony held due to the restrictions of the COVID 19 pandemic.
We expect generous donations and well wishes to make the ‘REVIVE Liver Project’ a success and to serve the Sri Lankans in need.
