Request to update dispensary to hospital

Nearly 5,000 farmer families in the Meegalewa and Usgala Siyabalangamuwa colonies in the Kurunegala District request to update the Meegalewa Ayurvedic Central Dispensary to an Ayurveda Hospital.

Many of the residents of the area are farmers, and they travel 28 kms to reach the Ambanpola Ayurveda Hospital when they need traditional treatments for their illnesses.

The Meegalewa Ayurvedic Central Dispensary caters to the people of 15 villages now including the two colonies.

One farmer of Meegalewa said that the buildings of the dispensary can be renovated and facilitated with modern equipment reducing the cost when it is updated.
