Sampath Bank started the restoration process of the Delikedali wewa in Dambana, Mahiyanganaya. The tank acts as the main water supply for 104 acres of paddy fields in the area and provides more than 90 families with their livelihoods. It is also of the utmost importance for the livelihoods of the indigenous community in the area. The tank’s sludge levels have risen constantly in the past few decades, resulting in difficulties storing large quantities of water. As the bunt and sluice need reconstruction, many farmers and indigenous people face hardships. However, with the assistance of the ‘Wewata Jeewayak’ initiative, the spill and water canals are in the process of being developed, which would ease the trouble of citizens having to trudge miles in search of water for irrigation and consumption purposes. This restoration reflects the Bank’s newest Corporate Campaign, ‘Pohosath Minissu: values that bind us beyond a transaction,’ which brings a fresh and vibrant perspective to their iconic brand. Pohosath Minissu believes that true wealth lies in material wealth and shared beliefs and values, which binds the Bank to the whole of Sri Lanka: its people and nature. By restoring the Delikedali wewa under the ‘Wewata Jeewayak’ restoration program, Sampath Bank has reaffirmed its commitment to Sri Lanka’s people, particularly its indigenous community.
