During our bi-yearly event with our business partners in Sri Lanka in September 2014, Sysmex Asia Pacific took this opportunity to do our part in contributing to the society. We donated a fully automated coagulation analyzer to Negombo Hospital and items for a First Aid room for Palangature Sinhala Mix School.
We had 2 Corporate Social Responsibility events during the short 3 days’ stay in Sri Lanka. We donated a fully automated coagulation analyzer to Negombo Hospital and taught the laboratory technicans how to use the analyzer to reduce their workload. We also donated items for a First Aid room, books and games for Palangature Sinhala Mix School.
Event participants who were our business partners, also bought games, stationery, clothes, and shoes and donated them to the school. All participants did their part by cleaning the school and planting some plants. The students were so excited that they immediately set up the net, pump the volleyball and started to play a game with our participants. It was a very hot day but everyone including the students were very happy.
