CKD-affected areas get drinking water

With the opening of its eleventh RO Plant, the Hayleys Puritas Sath Diyawara project, provides, 110,000 litres of drinking water to 25,000 people, in 16 villages, daily. Hayleys chose Puritas Sath Diyawara as its Flagship CSR project due to the increasing prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), particularly in the North Central Province of the country. CKDis estimated to have affected around 400,000 individuals (roughly 10%-15% of the population in the areas) and has claimed more than 22,000 lives and is found to be spreading rapidly to Northern, North Western, Eastern and Uva Provinces.

Hayleys Puritas Sath Diyawara, was launched by Puritas, a subsidiary of the Purification Sector of Hayleys, and now multiple sectors of the Hayleys Group sponsor the project,

It was awarded the Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Awards in 2015.

The second phase, 'Going Beyond' addresses the socio-economic needs of the affected villages through knowledge dissemination and empowerment. Key Initiatives carried out include provision of infrastructure and facilities for school children, empowering youth and women, building awareness on sustainable ways of waste management and re-greening villages and the uplift of domestic entrepreneurship.
