Reaching out to the needy

19 March, 2023

Sana Commerce Sri Lanka came forward in supporting and ensuring underprivileged children continue to have access to their education amidst the current economic challenges, through a timely donation late February as part of its signature CSR initiative, ‘Sipsatharata Arunellak – Helping Hands for Education’.

This annual initiative began in 2014 with a long-term vision of supporting children, through various projects, ensuring they receive continuous education and an enabling environment. The company has come a long way in this, having previously donated infrastructure facilities such as school buildings, water purification systems, computer labs, and computers.

This time around, 350 students who are financially marginalised from select schools received various school materials such as school bags, shoes, books, and stationery. Additionally, every child was also given a dry ration pack.

The funds were contributed by Sana Commerce with their employees from Sri Lanka joining in to make their contributions followed by those from other global employees, and through proceedings from various annual fundraising activities, including a stage drama held recently during January in Colombo and organised by its local CSR committee, the very team that is behind this initiative.
