COLOMBO (News1st): SriLankan Airlines uplifted a consignment of medical aid from Shanghai, China today.

This was a donation made by the Sri Lankan Community in China through the Consulate Generals of Sri Lanka in Guangzhou and Shanghai, facilitated by the Embassy of Sri Lanka in China.

The consignment contained essential medical items such as masks, protective clothing, goggles, face protection splash guards, nebulizers, pulse oximeters, thermometers and glucometers, which will be handed over to the Sri Lankan health authorities to be distributed among state hospitals for the benefit of medical staff tirelessly serving in the country’s battle against COVID-19 pandemic.

SriLankan Airlines has been fulfilling a humanitarian role through facilitating passage home to many Sri Lankan citizens across the globe, which includes the relief flight operated from Wuhan and ferry flights from India that brought over 800 stranded pilgrims back to the island.
