Commercial Bank of Ceylon PLC, the leading private bank in the country, recently assisted the University of Jaffna by providing computer equipment to its Department of Geography.

The five Personal Computers and UPS units funded by the Bank’s CSR Trust would significantly benefit students and staff in areas such as Geographical Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Geology and Hydrology, the University Authorities said.

 “While upgrading the technical competencies of the undergraduates, this contribution will strengthen the traditionally close relationships Commercial Bank has maintained with Jaffna University Authorities.  Commercial Bank is particularly proud that, just like the University, we too continued to serve the people of Jaffna throughout the difficult times,” said Richard Rodrigo, AGM - Plan Implementation and Co-ordinator of the CSR Trust of Commercial Bank.

Past initiatives of the Commercial Bank’s CSR Trust include granting of scholarships to undergraduates, setting up IT Labs in schools, conducting programmes aimed at upgrading the standard of English Education, assisting Children’s Homes, donating healthcare equipment and assisting the vocational training of prisoners.

Computers donated by the Bank being commissioned in the presence of the Bank’s Regional Manager, other Branch Managers, Bank Staff and University Authorities.
