There is never enough love for the human heart, especially for a child’s heart. As the Bank with a heart, we partnered with the SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka to offer them the love and care that they deserve and help transform their Christmas festivities to a meaningful celebration. We also take this opportunity to invite our loyal Cardholders to support this joyful cause this Christmas season for the children’s at the SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka and help put a smile on their faces.”

To-date, SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka has empowered over 90% of its children by identifying and developing their skills and securing them a respective placement in the community. 

“This year, we are delighted to present an amazing array of offers this festive season so that our credit cardholders can avail the deals on offer whilst they contribute towards making someone else’s Christmas special,” added De Silva.
