Teams from the 1990 Suwa Seriya Foundation and the Colombo Stock exchange release ambulances for service

With the intention of supporting Sri Lanka’s healthcare system by ensuring increased access to emergency healthcare services, the CSE adopted two ambulances for the 1990 Suwa Seriya Foundation.

This is in response to the program, ‘Adopt an Ambulance’ which was initiated by the Board and Management of the 1990 Suwa Seriya Foundation.

The two ambulances were released for service on 12 May 2024 from the Colombo Stock Exchange head office located at the World Trade Centre. The CSE branches are located in Matara, Kandy, Kurunegala, Panadura, Negombo, Jaffna, Anuradhapura, Ratnapura, Batticaloa, and Ambalantota.

Launched in 2016, Suwa Seriya is a national ambulance service providing free pre-hospital emergency care across the island, mobilising 322 ambulances country wide. Providing emergency pre-hospital care within the ‘golden hour’ saves lives and mitigates potential health complications.

Speaking on the release of the ambulances for service, 1990 Suwa Seriya Board Chairman Dumindra Ratnayake said, “CSE came forward to donate to the cause at our time of need. With their support we have refurbished two ambulances which will service the Panadura and Kandy areas. We thank CSE for their support and commitment to 1990 Suwa Seriya.”

CSE CEO Rajeeva Bandaranaike said, “We see this as an opportunity for us to do our part in supporting the commendable efforts taken by the 1990 Suwa Seriya Foundation. Supporting and safeguarding the community in which we live is something that we, as an exchange are passionate about and, it is ultimately crucial for sustaining the economic wellbeing of the country as a whole.
