The ‘Poson Vandana’ train with AVIVA NDB and NDB Bank co-branding

June 8, 2012 Colombo: For the third consecutive year, the free Poson Vandana shuttle train between Anuradhapura and Mihintale was available for the safety and convenience of Poson pilgrims and this year the train was brightly co-branded and sponsored jointly by AVIVA NDB Insurance and NDB Bank.   

AVIVA NDB Insurance facilitated the presence of around 575 lifesavers from the Lifesaving Association of Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Police and Navy at reservoirs and lakes in and around Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla during the Poson season.  An estimated one million pilgrims visit Anuradhapura during the Poson season and the AVIVA NDB safety programme has significantly reduced the number of deaths from drowning over the years. This is the 19th consecutive year that the Company conducted a safety programme for Poson pilgrims.   

Amal Perera, General Manager, Marketing & Bancassurance explained: “The Poson safety campaign is one of our main Corporate Responsibility initiatives that fulfils an important national need.  We are very happy to have joined hands with NDB Bank this year in making the shuttle service available for the benefit of devotees who visited the Sacred City.”
