As part of its continued CSR focus towards children, Amãna Bank made another valuable contribution to the Children’s Ward (15B) of the Colombo South (Kalubowila) General Hospital by donating essential medical equipment for the day-to-day use of treating patients. Along with the donation of an Auto Clave Steriliser, the bank also put a smile on the faces of the children admitted at the ward by giving them gifts.

Commenting on the occasion, Quvylidh said, “We are privileged to continue this bond with the Kalubowila Teaching Hospital and are committed to do our best for the betterment of children in line with our CSR focus. We believe this equipment would be of much help for the ward for its daily operational activities.”

Appreciating the contribution of Amãna Bank, Dr. Gunawardena said,“I am thankful to Amãna Bank for once again coming forward to not only maintain the ward but also assist us in providing better facilities to the patients towards their speedy recovery.”
