Considering a request made by President Naresh Ratwatte on behalf of the Ex-Planters Association, Praguna Management Consultants Ltd. sponsored a medical camp held in Madukelle for staff and workers in Panwila in the Matale District. 

Managing Director Dhammika Jayasuriya of Praguna Management, an ex-planter, together with Praguna, has made a valuable contribution to the development of the plantation industry. The medical camp covered over 450 estate workers and staff which comprised a dental clinic, a presentation on the ill-effects of tobacco and alcohol conducted by NATA and a presentation and screening for breast and uterus cancer by the Ministry Of Health of the district and the Cancer Society Kandy.  This was followed by the blood donation program. This program was organised mainly to give back something meaningful to the industry, specially the workers who had contributed with their blood and sweat to this industry for more than 150 years.
