Hameedia Helps Drought-Stricken Families in North-East Sri Lanka

Hameedia recently embarked on a humanitarian mission to provide water for
families most affected by the ongoing drought in North-East Sri Lanka. The
Hameedia team comprising ten members visited Polonnaruwa, Sinhapura, Galloya
and Higurackgoda and delivered water tanks and bottles to families most severely
affected by the drought.  Due to immense
poverty, thousands of people in these villages did not have access to clean
water and this was creating health and sanitation problems. Hameedia partnered
with the local provincial council to provide much needed relief by donating 30,
500 litre tanks and 75, 5 litre water bottles to families in need.

People are an
integral part of Hameedia’s business and the company believes firmly in helping
and supporting the community, especially in times of crisis. Hussain Sadique,
Deputy Managing Director, Hameedia Group, stated, “Hameedia is always looking
for ways to give back to the community and make a lasting impact in people’s
lives. We have embarked on various projects across Sri Lanka in order to uplift
people and provide them with assistance in their time of need. Some of our
previous projects include the donation of goods and equipment to the Mental
Health Care Unit of Lunawa District Hospital and we have also painted wards and
donated rations and gifts to the Hemas Adolescent and Adult Thalesemia Care
Centre as well as the National Cancer Hospital.”

One of the company’s
most prominent CSR projects, ‘My Friend’ also aims to support the country’s
underprivileged youth in their efforts to better themselves through education. Established
in 1949, Hameedia has been setting the benchmark in menswear fashion for
decades whilst simultaneously supporting people and communities throughout Sri
Lanka.
