As part of yet another Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, Multilac & Macktiles donated a Dialysis machine to the Panadura Base Hospital recently. 

The machine was presented to Dr Rajitha Senaratna, Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine by Shimmer Milfer, CEO of Macksons Holdings and Ismail Hussain, CEO of Shimmzi Plastics, in the presence of the hospital administrative management and staff. 

Dialysis is the process of removing waste and excess water from blood, and is used in replacement of kidney functions for people with kidney failure. The dialysis machine mixes and monitors the dialysate—the fluid that helps remove waste from blood. The machine monitors the flow of blood while it is outside the body, purifies it and pumps the blood back to the body. It also helps to get electrolytes and minerals to proper levels in the body.

With this venture was the fulfillment of a much-needed requirement to the Panadura Base Hospital as none of the hospitals in the area had a dialysis machine. As such, patients who needed such treatment had to travel all the way to Colombo. Thus, the Companies believe that this venture will benefit countless numbers of patients who are suffering from kidney failure in the area. Multilac and Macktiles are confident that the doctors along with the staff of the hospital will make an optimum utilization of the machine to render a great service to the patients in the Kalutara Disctrict. And the management has decided to upgrade the facilities in the Panadura Base Hospital under the second phase of this CSR project.

Established in 1970, Macksons Holdings is a diversified conglomerate, which has marked a firm presence in the sectors of manufacturing, retailing, property development, imports and exports of household products, leisure, automobile and building materials. Multilac, Sri Lanka’s largest paint manufacturer and exporter is also owned by Macksons Holdings and is the only paint manufacturing company in the country that has received the Green Label Certification. The main manufacturing facility of Multilac is situated in Panadura.

Macktiles is a part of the Macksons Holdings Group of companies, which manufactures tiles in their state-of-the-art factory in Bandaragama. The company contributes to save the foreign exchange that is spent on imported tiles and strengthens the Sri Lankan tile industry.
