The State Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Corporation (SPMC) that makes meaningful contributions to the society annually through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, recently launched yet another progressive step towards Help Age Sri Lanka (HASL) to conduct two Eye Care camps for the benefit of underprivileged Senior Citizens at the Kataragama Sacred City.

SPMC is the only State sector pharmaceutical drug manufacturer in Sri Lanka that has been known for manufacturing a broad range of quality and reliability pharmaceuticals for over two decades.

The donations made by SPMC were utilized for eye screening of over 450 needy Senior Citizens and among them, 337 persons were diagnosed for free bifocal spectacles. In addition, 39 persons were referred to HelpAge Eye Hospital, Sinsapa Road, Wellawatte, for free Cataract Surgeries. Reading glasses were also distributed among persons.

SPMC, Chairman Dr. Sayura Samarasundara , Manager Marketing Tharanga Kulasekara and General Manager Sujeewa Jayasundara were present, while HASL was represented by a group of Mobile medical team members.

This has been the third consecutive year that SPMC had joined hands with HelpAge Sri Lanka to help needy Senior citizens in the country to improve their eye sight and health conditions as well as other social activities.

SPMC, together with HelpAge Sri Lanka, will continuously conduct similar Mobile Medical and Eye Camps in other districts in the coming years. HelpAge Executive Director Samantha Liyanawaduge highlighted the painstaking efforts made by SPMC for making this invaluable donation to conduct this Medical and Eye camp service continuously for the benefit of our own senior citizens.
