Ceylinco Life has come to the assistance of the people of Trincomalee with two community initiatives in the spheres of healthcare and education.
Coinciding with the opening of a new custom-designed, four-storey eco-friendly office building in the town, Sri Lanka’s life insurance leader donated a sophisticated portable ventilator to the Trincomalee General Hospital, and built a classroom for St Mary’s College, Trincomalee.
The Newport HT70® ventilator from Newport Medical, USA, offers exceptional mobility, safety and ease of use for invasive and non-invasive ventilatory support for infants, paediatric and adult patients. A similar ventilator donated by Ceylinco Life to the National Hospital (NHSL) in Colombo has to date helped many patients survive critical episodes through successful resuscitation.
The ventilator costing Rs 1.2 million donated by Ceylinco Life to the Trincomalee General Hospital can be used to resuscitate patients after cardiac arrest or cardiac failure, acute pulmonary oedema, respiratory failure due to pneumonia, asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), ischaemic stroke, intra-cerebral haemorrhage, or epileptic fits among others.
The classroom building constructed and donated by Ceylinco Life to St. Mary’s College at Dockyard Road, Trincomalee, will help ease congestion at the school, which accommodates 1,700 students and 96 teachers. Ceylinco Life has to date built classroom buildings for 64 rural schools across Sri Lanka.
Ceylinco Life’s new office building in Trincomalee was ceremonially declared open by the company’s Managing Director/CEO R. Renganathan on 14th November 2015.
The market leader in Sri Lanka’s life insurance sector since 2004, Ceylinco Life has close to a million lives covered by active policies. The company is acknowledged as the benchmark for innovation in the local insurance industry for its work in product research and development, customer service, professional development and corporate social responsibility.
