Elephant House, a household brand, handed over Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) to the Homagama Base Hospital recently, for the safety of the front-liners battling the Covid-19 pandemic by minimizing exposure to the virus.

This project was an extension of the John Keells Praja Shakthi CSR initiative in Ranala, a collaboration with community empowerment between Elephant House and John Keells Foundation.

The PPE’s were handed over to Dr. Hettiarachchi Medical Superintendent, Base Hospital Homagama by Sanjeewa Jayasundara Head of Supply Chain Elephant House.

John Keells Foundation, the CSR division of the Group that is spearheading many such initiatives, has under this project collaborated with Ceylon Cold Stores (Elephant House) in identifying and donating PPE requirements to the Homagama Base Hospital.

Elephant House together with Keells Supermarkets and John Keells Foundation previously distributed over 10,500 packs of essential provisions free of charge to families in the Western Province, supporting the Government’s initiative of ensuring that Sri Lankans have access to daily essentials during these difficult times.
