Navy recognized for its Social Responsibility initiative

[March 07 2017]


Sri Lanka Navy's initiative in providing water treatment plants (Reverse Osmosis) to areas that are most prone to Chromic Kidney Disease (CKD) has earned special recognition at an awards ceremony organized by the Japan Sri Lanka Technical & Cultural Association (JESTECA).

According to Navy media sources the event was held for the 21st consecutive time at the Galadari Hotel in Colombo on Saturday (04th March). So far the Navy has installed 153 RO (Reverse Osmosis) plants in remote areas especially in schools and temples enabling more than 73000 families and over 56000 school children easy and free access to safe drinking water.

Sri Lanka Navy commenced the project as a part of its social responsibility initiative in December 2015. The project was mooted under the concept of the Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne. The project was initially funded by the contributions of Naval personnel. The RO plants are produced by the Navy's Research and Development Unit. With funding from the Presidential Task Force on Prevention of Chronic Kidney Disease the Navy has installed a large number of RO plants in many parts of the island.
