The Silver Linings Charitable Trust was founded by Dr Mrin Nayagam, who works at the Village Clinic in Mount Eliza, Victoria. Dr Mrin Nayagam also resides in this picturesque Australian seaside town, located in the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
This is a charitable trust registered with the Australian Charitable and Not for profit Commission (ACNC) .
This trust was founded by Dr Nayagam with the intention that all of its funds will be diverted to benefit financially disadvantaged people in the local community. It is named after Dr Nayagam’s book "SILVER LININGS- True stories of resilience from a General Practice" first published in July, 2017. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the SLCT.
The funds will be distributed through donations to other organisations with a DGR (deductible gift recipient) status like the Community Support Frankston.
The trustee of the SLCT is the Silver Linings Charity Limited, the directors of which are Dr Mrin Nayagam and her family members, Dr Prakash Nayagam (husband) and her adult sons David and Romy.
There will be no administration fees for the trust, thus 100% of SLCT's funds will be used to assist the financially disadvantaged.
