【A-PAD Sri Lanka】A-PAD Sri Lanka and HSBC Distribute PPEs to Healthcare Workers
With funds provided by HSBC, A-PAD Sri Lanka procured and distributed personal protective equipment (PPEs) to front line healthcare workers for the COVID-19 response. These items were produced by domestic manufacturers that have been hit hard by COVID-19’s enormous economic fallout. This initiative also aimed to supply these PPEs on the international market.
Mr. Mark Prothero, CEO of HSBC Sri Lanka and the Maldives presented the PPEs to Major General Sudantha Ranasinghe, the Director General of the Disaster Management Centre (DMC) on May 4, 2020 at DMC’s Colombo office. The supplies included protective suits, face covers, shoe covers, and reusable masks.
