Lack of quality drinking water is a major issue in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. Especially Chronic Kidney Disease affected areas such as Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura, Padaviya, Galgamuwa and other surrounding areas in the North Central Province.
Although the government & several institutions are supplying Reverse Osmosis Water Filter systems to rural communities, filter maintenance is not done regularly, and continuous maintenance of RO system is also a burden to most of the rural villages, schools, temples.Therefore supply, installation & regularly maintaining of RO systems is a great social service & help to these rural communities. This is the best solution for these areas.
President/CEO, Dr Dishan Jayasinha and his wife Zuigly Jayasinha of the Sri Lanka Foundation International, USA who are residents of USA traveled all the way to Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka to grace the occasion of the opening of a Brand New Reverse Osmosis Water Filteration Unit system installation that has a capacity of providing 200 gallons of water per day in the Aruna Singithi Pre School, Arunapura, Aralaganvila, Polonnaruwa. The Director of Cultural Affairs and the Director of Operations of the Academy of Performing Arts of SLF was also present to witness the occasion. This unit supplies clean water over 50 students, their parents and staff.
SLF has identified other locations that urgently need these RO Water Filters installed and if you wish to support this Cause please click on the link below to Donate.
