The Human Resource Division of the LOLC Group organized its annual CSR project at the National Institute of Mental Health in Angoda (NIMH) recently. This hospice is home to 950 male and female patients and consists of a ward for the elderly. LOLC officials distributed much needed provisions and spoke with hospital authorities for possible extension of assistance in the future.LOLC’s CSR program was held under the patronage of its Chairperson, Mrs. Rohini Nanayakkara, Group Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Kapila Jayawardena and LOLC Head of Human Resources, Mr. Pradeep Uluwaduge. All members of the HR division also participated in organizing all aspects of this project.In addition, LOLC officials visited the Halfway Home Mulleriyawa of NIMH and donated essential items and clothes to over 450 women who are currently admitted under the hospital’s long term inpatient care service.Commenting Mr. Pradeep Uluwaduge, Head of Human Resources of the LOLC Group said, “All donated provisions were obtained from generous contributions made by our staff members and various other divisions of the Group. It helped to fulfil some of the immediate requirements of this Hospital. When we met with hospital authorities, we were informed that Mental Health Care facilities are not usually given focus under corporate community outreach programs. There is a vast need at NIMH to meet various requirements of its inpatients, which they are struggling to fulfil. Therefore, the HR division of the LOLC Group cordially urge interested parties of the Corporate Community to include some of the much needed requirements of this Hospital and its facilities to their CSR programs as well.”During the previous years too LOLC’s HR division conducted CSR activities at divisional level in addition to supporting the Company’s main CSR initiative “LOLC CARE”. Through “LOLC CARE”, the Company jointly manages a Children’s Home in Madiwela with the support of National Council for Child and Youth Welfare (NCCYW).
