Amana refurbishes children's ward

The Amana Group of Companies, comprising Amana Investments Limited, Amana Takaful Insurance, Amana Capital Limited, Lanka Commodity Brokers Limited and IGL Lanka Limited refurbished the Children's Ward 15B at the Colombo South Teaching Hospital, Kalubowila as part of the Group's Corporate Social Responsibility project.

The refurbishment project was funded by the Amana Children's Charity Fund which was formed in 2005 to support the welfare and development of underprivileged and disabled children in the country in the areas of education, nourishment, healthcare and rehabilitation. The Group picked "Children our future" as the theme for its CSR work after much deliberation.

The Amana Charity Fund will maintain this ward on an annual basis. The Young Muslim Women's League worked in collaboration with Amana to provide a variety of children's toys for the play area at the ward.

Amana's MD, Faizal Salieh said "We are delighted to have undertaken this project for the Colombo South Government Hospital's Children's Ward in keeping with our social responsibility objectives. Hospitals are not the best places for people to spend time, but we hope that this refurbishment project will provide a pleasant environment for the children receiving medical care in this ward". He thanked the Young Muslim Women's League for the collaborative role they played in the project.

The hospital's chief Consultant Pediatrician, Prof. Narada Warnasuriya said "We are grateful to Amana for assisting us in this way. This project is a fine example of private public partnership in non-profit healthcare services for the benefit of the poorer segments of our society.

The refurbished ward was handed over to the hospital authorities at a ceremony at the hospital. Dr. Deepthi Samarage, Consultant Paediatrician of the Hospital, Dr. Dulani Gunasekera, Dr. Guwani Liyanage, Dr. M. Karim, Ishrat Rauff, CEO of Amana Capital, Hospital staff members and members of Young Muslim Women's League were present.
