Perera and Sons donated a reverse osmosis (RO) equipment to the Dialysis Department of Trincomalee Regional Base Hospital. Reverse osmosis equipment enables people to obtain more clean and safe drinking water, thereby reducing the occurrence and spread of water-borne diseases, and minimizing exposure to chemical pollutants that may plague local groundwater sources. The device was manufactured by an expert engineer from the Sri Lanka Navy.
The Trincomalee Regional Base Hospital was established in 1940 and currently has 97 doctors, 608 nurses and attendants, and 523 beds, including specialized dialysis rooms, which provide daily personal care. The dialysis room has 7 beds and treats 14 patients every day. Five loyal doctors led by consultant nephrology doctor Dr. Lakshman Weerasinghe stated that his dream came true during his 3-year career at Trincomalee Hospital and was able to deliver treated water to the department. RO equipment can achieve more efficient water treatment and enable hospitals to stably supply uncontaminated water for general and medical purposes, helping to ensure the health and safety of all patients and visitors. Perera and Sons stepped up to support the initial request for assistance from Dr. Jagath Wickramaratne, Director of the Sri Lanka Naval and Regional General Hospital. This donation demonstrates their long-term commitment to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal 3-good health and well-being, and 6-clean water and sanitation.
Reverse osmosis is a widely used water treatment process that removes contaminants by passing pressurized water through a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane isolates contaminants and allows pure water molecules to pass through, while capturing and separating contaminated molecules. The RO process filters out all possible contaminants, leaving clean drinking water for use. Therefore, reverse osmosis equipment will ensure public access to clean and consumable drinking water.
In this regard, Kamal Jaimon, Executive Director of Perera and Sons, said: “As a responsible and well-loved household brand, ensuring the well-being of local communities is our top priority. Clean water poses a major threat to humanity around the world, and it’s sad. Yes, as a country, we have also experienced its devastating effects. Access to clean water is one of the most important and basic human rights, and we are happy to ensure this access by donating a reverse osmosis plant."
Ruvini Kariyawasam, Director of Corporate Affairs at Perera and Sons, commented: “This demonstrates our commitment and determination to give back to society, to help communities move towards a safer and more sustainable future, and to provide protection for future generations. We also hope this will shed light on this. Clean water plays an important role in our daily lives and supports responsible water use."
Gihan Perera, Managing Director/CEO of Perera and Sons said: "Our corporate social responsibility brand'Manumehewera' is a humanitarian enterprise that is continuously strengthened by caring for those who really need it. This is a journey. Aiming to achieve the destiny that belongs to everyone-to truly live for each other. We will not stop here; we have more plans to give back to society."
