Sri Lanka

Volunteers helped out at the Chest Hospital

January 2013 │ Sri Lanka

On January 19, Deutsche Bank volunteers from Sri Lanka visited the Chest Hospital in Welisara. The hospital is the only functioning chest hospital in the country; with 671 beds, its main function is to treat tuberculosis and other chest-related ailments. The daily turnover of patients at its Outpatient Department is over 500.

Working with the Lions Club of Kandana, an internationally recognized non-profit-making organization, our volunteers visited Ward No. 1, a non-tuberculosis ward that is undergoing a long overdue renovation. The renovation project is estimated to cost more than 5,000 euros. The ward is in need of a fresh coat of paint, and the toilets require repairing. The doors, windows, electrical system and beds will be replaced. The Bank will donate a sum of money to help the hospital with this project.

Our corporate volunteers spent a labour-intensive morning at the ward, cleaning the beds and the equipment and painting the bedside tables.
