The clinic offering free medicine and medical services for flood victims


Prioritising its responsibilities of assisting communities during difficult times, Sri Lanka’s premier private healthcare service provider Nawaloka Hospitals organised a special CSR initiative on 12 June, to provide free medicine and medical services, including investigations like blood sugar checkup, for flood victims in the Ratnapura District.

Over 300 participants benefited from this timely CSR initiative which was organised with the help of Ratnapura Divisional Secretariat’s Disaster Management Unit. Free medicine and other medical services were delivered with the help of doctors, nurses and phlebotomists of Nawaloka Hospitals, where a number of local cinema and television stars assisted hospital staff in this endeavour.

Commenting about the initiative, Nawaloka Hospitals PLC Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Dr. Jayantha Dharmadasa said, “At Nawaloka Hospitals, we always pledge to help alleviate grief and distress experienced by people during a disastrous period through many initiatives. Helping flood victims in Ratnapura District was part of that initiative. I thank the entire Nawaloka Hospitals’ team who worked tirelessly to make our latest CSR initiative a huge success, where we had the opportunity to provide proper medication and other medical services to people who got heavily affected by the floods.”

Nawaloka entered the state dominated healthcare sector in 1985 and was set up to mirror reputed hospitals in the region which offered advanced medical technology and expert medical care. With its entry the private healthcare system took root in Sri Lanka and people were provided with an alternative to seeking specialised treatment outside the country. The hospital was a pioneering initiative that built an impeccable reputation and has been at the forefront of the Sri Lankan healthcare sector for over three decades.
