Staff of Ceylinco Life mounted a humanitarian operation in June to provide dry rations to daily wage earners who were unable to find adequate food for their families due to the travel restrictions imposed to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in the Colombo District. More than 1500 packs, each worth Rs 1,000, were distributed in the Colombo Metropolitan area, with the majority going to families in the Slave Island and Torrington areas, the Company said. Ceylinco Life worked with the Centre for Humanitarian Affairs of the Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies (CHA) and officers of the Police in this effort. Notably, 324 permanent employees of the Company voluntarily contributed to the cost of nearly half of the packs donated.
Ceylinco Life has also donated High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) equipment to several hospitals at the forefront of treating patients affected by COVID-19.
