To commemorate the Bank’s 59th anniversary, People’s Bank organised a blood donation camp at the Head Office in Colombo 2.

The blood donation camp was organised by the People’s Bank Welfare Department. People’s Bank Chairman Sujeewa Rajapakse and a large number of the bank’s staff members volunteered to donate blood. The event was also attended by Chief Executive Officer/General Manager Ranjith Kodituwakku, Senior Deputy General Manager (Human Resources and Legal) Rohan Pathirage, Deputy General Manager (Banking Support Services) Mahinda Premanath and Deputy General Manager (Human Resources) P.R.S. Jayatissa.

From all the special programs, religious events and social service projects that the bank has organised to commemorate its 59th anniversary, the blood donation camp takes on special significance. Given the COVID-19 situation in the country, the blood donation camp was carried out in accordance with health guidelines.

Following the health checkup, the blood was collected from the donors under the strict supervision of the doctors of the Blood Bank. Through this program People’s Bank is able to donate a significant amount of blood every year to the Blood Bank.
