On behalf of the Silver Linings Charitable Trust, thank you, for your wonderful support, since the launch of my book, Silver Linings-True Stories of Resilience from a General Practice, which coincided with the founding of the Silver Linings Charitable Trust, in 2017.
Considering the Australia wide and global financial crisis caused by the COVID 19 Pandemic, I feel it is not appropriate to seek financial donations to the trust. Hence the trust will be closed and no further donations will be accepted after the 15 th May 2020. Book sales from the website will also cease after this date.
To all who purchased, read the book and provided me with invaluable feedback and to those who also contributed with financial donations to the Trust, I extend my appreciative thanks.
Above all I wish to thank my patients who shared their life’s journey with me to enable me to produce this book.
The funds raised through the sales of my book as well as your generous donations, enabled the donation of $50,000 to the financially disadvantaged in the Frankston area through Community Support Frankston. This was a privilege I treasure.
I will strive to continue to support the financially disadvantaged in the Frankston and surrounding areas in the future.
I hope that my book continues to inspire medical professionals as well as give hope and comfort to the non-medical public for many years to come.
With best wishes for your continued good health and happiness,
Dr Mrin Nayagam
Founding Director /Silver Linings Charitable Trust
Author/Silver Linings-True stories of resilience from a General Practice
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.
