As a part of its ongoing CSR efforts to actively support initiatives that empower segments of society in need of special care, Pan Asia Bank supported the annual Sunshine games organised by the Rotary Club of Colombo Metropolitan for the fifth consecutive year.
The event, held this year at the Wesley College Sports Grounds in Colombo, was arranged as usual for the physically challenged children with special needs, to bring a little sunshine to their lives by giving them a day of fun and entertainment. This also helps to instil in them confidence and help them understand they are not overlooked in society. They feel accepted and prepare to meet the many challenges they are encountered with, due to their unfortunate state.
Almost 750 children participated in the games representing several schools and homes which care for them in all parts of the country. The games are also used to recruit contenders for future international disabled sports events, where in the past such participants have won many accolades at international events.
Pan Asia Banking Corporation PLC is a rapidly growing local commercial bank with a network of 77 branches that has earned a strong reputation for offering a fast and courteous service along with a range of dynamic financial services and products.
