In a concerted attempt to reinforce the national COVID-19 response this Vesak Season,
Sri Lanka’s leading real estate group, Prime Group recently made a timely donation of two Non-invasive
Ventilators worth Rs. 2.6 Million to the newly established COVID-19 treatment ward at the District
General Hospital, Gampaha.
As the Vesak season draws near, the group urges the public to follow in their footsteps to prioritize the
internal aspects of the season over traditional festivities and decorations, by engaging instead in acts of
compassion, solidarity and generosity to help save lives and livelihoods as the pandemic continues to
rage across the island.
The ventilators were handed over to Dr. Sasanka Wedisinghe of District General Hospital, Gampaha by
Prime Group’s Chairman, Premalal Brahmanage in the presence of a number of the Group’s directors
and members on the 21 st May, 2021. This addition bolsters the hospital’s treatment capacity from four
units to six units, further empowering the hospital to deliver life-saving care to a greater number of
patients in critical condition.
“Vesak is a time for empathy and giving, and we at Prime Group firmly believe that every good deed is
also a good investment. With the pandemic in full force, equitable access to ventilators is a vital pillar in
the country’s response to COVID-19, especially as the number of cases continue to rise exponentially.
In such a backdrop, we believe this timely donation to District General Hospital, Gampaha will better
equip its frontline healthcare team to manage a larger number of patients than was initially possible. As a
leading corporate with a vision to make a better place on earth, our team considers it our duty to do
our maximum to uplift as many as possible during these unprecedented times and continue to invest our
best efforts in bringing an end to this debilitating pandemic, and we invite and encourage our fellow
members of the private sector to do so.,” stated Prime Group Chairman, Premalal Brahmanage.
Prime Group’s donation comes at a time when the rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 positive
cases has demanded the use of more and more ventilators due to the extreme breathing difficulties the
virus causes. This is one among the company’s many initiatives to support both the public and further
empower Sri Lanka’s frontline defenses against this malice. The company calls upon the support of all
private sector organisations to do their part in mitigating the grave implications of the progressing global
pandemic, while applauding those who have contributed to these relief efforts.
