Nearly 2,200 people have received free medical checks this year courtesy of Ceylinco Life under the life insurance leader’s ‘Waidya Hamuwa’ (Meet the Doctor) community programme, which has benefitted some 135,000 people in 13 years.
Funded under the company’s extensive portfolio of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, the ‘Waidya Hamuwa’ programme is carried out by a team of doctors, medical and ophthalmic technicians and nurses that travel across the country, offering communities the facility of free consultancy and diagnostic checks.
In the first 10 months of 2016, Ceylinco Life’s ‘Waidya Hamuwa’ team conducted free health camps in Kotahena (175 attendees), Divulapitiya (245), Dankotuwa (198), Panduwasnuwara (225), Veyangoda (240), Mirigama (218), Aralaganwila (245), Bibile (213), Anamaduwa (195) and Nikaweratiya (215), the company said.
These camps were organised with the assistance of Ceylinco Life branches serving these areas and were held in branch premises or in schools and other public areas. Attendees receive a free examination by a doctor and undergo the necessary diagnostic tests such as random blood sugar, ECG and blood pressure. They also receive eye checks free of charge.
These gatherings are used by Ceylinco Life to educate attendees on cancer and diabetes using video clips and other modes of communication.
“The ‘Waidya Hamuwa’ programme is a perfect example of how we live up to our promise of Life, Love and Protection,” Ceylinco Life Managing Director/CEO R. Renganathan said. “As the leading provider of life insurance in Sri Lanka, we are acutely aware of the health issues that confront our people and the challenge of providing underserved communities adequate access to medical care. This initiative may have helped save many lives over the past 13 years.” Ceylinco Life defines its CSR as ‘The continuing commitment of the company to create a sustainable business environment even in the remotest areas of the country through meaningful interventions in areas such as healthcare and education for needy people, while providing protection and financial security of the highest quality.”
