Swadeshi Industrial Works PLC the manufacturer of Khomba herbal soap – the No. 1 herbal soap brand in Sri Lanka, donates water tanks for communities all over Sri Lanka. This CSR project continues under ‘Swadeshi Khomba Herbal Soap’ brand. Swadeshi recently donated water tanks to rural villages all over the island. 

Spokesperson of Swadeshi said, “As a Sri Lankan-owned company, we consider it a duty to help the communities in the rural areas in Sri Lanka to raise a healthier younger generation. Getting safe water for drinking in schools is a big problem in dry zone areas in Sri Lanka. During the driest times of the year, children are having health issues by not consuming sufficient water during the day. Communities suffer many difficulties and hardships due to this. At Swadeshi we think this is our own social responsibility and we are hoping to continue this project in years to come.”

It’s another ‘Swadeshi Khomba Praja Sathkaraya’ project which gives safe water for hundreds of students and teachers.

Swadeshi Khomba also annually illuminates the country’s most famous temples under the theme, ‘Swadeshi Khomba Aloka Puja Sathkaraya’. “As a Sri Lankan owned company, we consider it a duty to safeguard the culture and traditional heritage of Sri Lanka by supporting activities such as Aloka Poojawa,” she added.

She explained that Swadeshi illuminates places of worship in the country for the benefit of all worshippers and also to educate the younger generation on the importance of safeguarding the country’ heritage. 

Swadeshi supports the Aloka Poojas of Kataragama Kiri Wehera, Ruhunu Kataragama Maha Devalaya, Devundara Uthpalawarna Vishnu Devalaya, Redeegama Ridee Viharaya, Rathnapura Maha Saman Devalaya, Dambadeniya Raja Maha Viharaya and Keragala Raja Maha Viharaya annually.
