Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am honored to be elected as the new President of the CTMA. Founded in 1998, this Association has served the Tamil community both in Canada and Sri Lanka through humanitarian aid, infrastructure development as well as health education and outreach. As I prepare to commence the new term, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all my senior colleagues and past Presidents who were integral in the development of CTMA. Over the term, I would like to increase our presence as a strong health advocate within our community and promote member engagement within our organization.
We currently live in unprecedented times. The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused a ripple in every aspect of our society, with uncertainty of what lies ahead. Health-care providers has risen to the challenge with tremendous strength and unwavering commitment. I would like to acknowledge the hard work and exceptional efforts of our front-line health-care workers in managing the COVID-19 crisis.
CTMA is committed to educating the public on this growing crisis through mainstream media and social media as well as developing pandemic-related medical initiatives to support our community in Canada. In addition to this, we are working with recognized non-profit organizations in Sri Lanka to assist with pandemic-related relief efforts. For our members, CTMA will strive to provide opportunities for service and professional development.
