Seylan Bank took initiative to completely refurbish the Doctors Cafeteria at the National Hospital of Sri Lanka by investing a sum of four million rupees. The opening of the newly refurbished doctors cafeteria within the hospital premises took place in the presence of Ramesh Jayasekara, Senior DGM, Seylan Bank and Dr Anil Jasinghe, Director General of Health Services in Sri Lanka and other dignitaries.
The refurbishment covered a complete renovation of the existing cafeteria with a new entrance gate, floor tiling, wall tiling and complete color washing, upgraded plumbing and wiring of the entire area.
This initiative affirms the bank’s commitment towards the national fight against Covid-19. Earlier, this year team Seylan commenced operations to construct a completely equipped ICU unit at Colombo East Base Hospital with the generous donation of a day’s pay from the bank’s employees, which was equally matched by the bank. Seylan Bank is extremely grateful to the frontline officers, who had worked tirelessly day and night to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Their efforts have assured Sri Lanka to move out of the lockdown towards normalcy, faster than anticipated. To show the bank’s gratitude towards the national effort, Seylan Bank has stepped in to support the hospital’s most urgent needs.
