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.

Congratulations again on your book launch! I finished reading your book last weekend. Every story was a heartfelt one, and oh my goodness, I couldn’t keep reading it without tissue box besides me! We all go through ups and downs, and these people have been through so much through their sickness, but they all somehow find their happiness, glimpse of hopes and courage to get through it, the light side of the tunnel. I wept so much. We never know what struggles people have been through behind their smiles, don’t we.? Life is very individual and lots of ups and downs regardless small or big. Your patients’ stories definitely gave me some courage and I felt very compassionate to all those people. However, the most importantly I admire you so much for your purpose of publishing the book!! I’m hoping maybe you would consider writing silver linings 2!!
