NDB Bank recently made a donation towards the national ‘COVID-19 Healthcare and Social Security Fund’. 
As a bank, NDB has always been in the forefront of our nation’s development. During such a time where this pandemic has brought many activities to a standstill and the country is in need of financial assistance to fight COVID-19, the bank’s employees together with the bank, donated these funds to do their part for the nation.


All NDB staff members made a contribution from their April salary and the bank in turn matched rupee-to-rupee, the total contribution made by the employees.  NDB Bank Director/Group CEO Dimantha Seneviratne and Vice President – Group HR Lasantha Dasanayake handed over the donation to the country at the 
Presidential Secretariat.


NDB also recently donated funds for a Fully Automated Nucleic Acid Extraction and PCR System as one of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, a normal PCR machine takes up to 8 hours to complete a test and a Real-time PCR machine takes up to 6 hours. 


However, this particular machine will only take up to two and a half to three hours for a test to be completed. Hence, during such a time where the pandemic has brought about the need to carry out many medical tests while also saving time, this system is very vital. This will also make the environment safer for MLTs and medical workers at MRI.


Meanwhile, the NDB KCC branch provided essential goods to several families in Kekirawa with their own personal funds as a collective measure to help out the people in the locality. The branch made this contribution with support from the Mithudam Yathrawa. 


Additionally, the bank has also taken strategic steps to ensure that the customers are safe at home and maintaining precautions against the virus, while also creating the means in which customers can continue their banking transactions via safe and digital methods.
