Kanrich Finance has extended its helping hand to a National Service, the objective of which is the upgrading of various temples and monasteries, that lack essential facilities. In our Country almost all cities and villages have a large number of Buddhist Shrines. But only a handful of those possess the necessary facilities. Through our program of assisting Buddhist Monasteries, in places where many low-income earners live, we implement this Buddhist Religious and Social Service movement under the theme “Sasunata Diriyak”. This is a service that is of benefit to the total Buddhist Community. Besides, we see this movement as the laying of the initial foundation, to preserve the Buddha Sasana for the benefit of the future generations .”
Kanrich Finance, that has won the trust of the customers as a local Finance Institution, has always been in the fore-front in providing social benefits. Besides, we are a Finance Institution, that prioritizes assistance to religious activities.
