The Bank of Ceylon extended its support and contribution towards providing relief aid to devastated flood victims in severely affected areas. The Bank staff voluntarily made donations and rendered help in every possible way to provide relief to those flood victims. It is a timely response to the national crisis that has risen due to heavy torrential rain and massive landslides.
In bringing hope and some relief to those who were affected, the bank staff organized relief aid that were transported in six lorry loads on Saturday, 21st May (Vesak Poya day) morning and the fleet of vehicles reached areas of Seethawakapura, Kiriella, Kegalle, Puttalam, and Kaduwela. These relief aid was distributed by Deputy General Managers, Assistant General Managers, Operation Managers, Trade Union members and staff of respective regions to affected people through divisional secretariats.
“This endeavour was not a mere philanthropic contribution from our part. We seek every way that is possible for us to be of some assistance to those who have suffered immensely due to floods. We will continue to provide much comprehensive support for them to re-build their lives once again. With the direction given by the management our staff worked relentlessly during those two days, continuously for 48 hours in their personal capacity to provide some relief to fellow citizens. I very much appreciate the dedication shown by our staff and everyone who joined to complete this crucial task” stated the General Manager D.M. Gunasekera.
