In line with the company’s CSR commitment to transform communities, and following the request made by the District Medical Officer, Dr Samantha Wickremasinghe, JAT Holdings supported the renovation of the Wethara District Hospital by donating paint and by providing the required technical assistance and support for the renovation. The hospital had not been renovated for many years and was in urgent need of renovation as it is the only government hospital accessible to around 86,000 people from 20 grama niladhari divisions and treats thousands of patients daily.

The hospital consists of an OPD Unit, maternity ward, lab and other residential treatment wards. In the first phase of the renovation project, all buildings of the hospital were repaired and painted. The second phase included the installation of information boards to create awareness on Covid-19 related health guidelines and other service-related information. Furthermore, as a tribute to the untiring efforts of the medical staff combating the Covid-19 pandemic, JAT Holdings supported the renovation of the residential doctor’s quarters too.

The project was completed and handed over on the 25th of March 2021. As a pioneering Sri Lankan company and a leading conglomerate in Sri Lanka, JAT Holdings takes pride in driving the nation’s growth and development through the upliftment and support extended to transform communities in Sri Lanka.
