Watawala Tea, Sri Lanka’s a diversified conglomerate of Sunshine Holdings PLC, donated Ceylon tea packs to patients and staff members in hospitals dealing with COVID-19 islandwide.

The company has catered to the requirements of the - National Hospital Colombo, Negombo District General Hospital, Chillaw District General Hospital, Gampaha District General Hospital, Kalutara District General Hospital, Ragama Teaching Hospital, Karapitiya Teaching Hospital, KurunegalaTeaching Hospital and Homagama Base Hospital.

Watawala Tea also handed 200,000 tea bags to the Sri Lanka Navy, to be distributed among Navy personnel. The donation was recently handed over to Commodore K.T.M. Perera, Commanding Officer of Sri Lanka Volunteer Naval Force and SLNS ‘Lanka’, at the Sri Lanka Volunteer Naval Force Headquarters in Welisara.

The donation was a timely initiative by Watawala Tea at a time when several Navy personnel unfortunately contracted COVID-19 during a quarantine mission, which was carried out to help contain the spread of the virus.

Watawala Tea’s contribution, which comprised of Zesta tea bags and Watawala Haritha tea bags, is intended to provide a familiar source of comfort to all those directly affected by this pandemic as well as brave and selfless healthcare workers who are driving the front-line defence to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Sri Lanka.

As a time-tested wellness drink, tea is known to impart numerous benefits to the body’s immune system and those in the hospitals can indulge in a warm cup of Ceylon tea regularly. More than ever, the company remains deeply committed to helping its customers and the broader community deal with the unprecedented medical and economic crisis caused by COVID-19.
