COLOMBO (News1st): A Memorandum of Understanding was exchanged between Hatton National Bank and Gammadda for the development of the Yaaya 6 village in Anuradhapura on Friday.
The agreement was signed between the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Hatton National Bank Jonathan Alles, and the Group Director of the Capital Maharaja Group Chevaan Daniel.
Members of the Yaya 6 Gammadda Saviya Committee and special exclusive invitees of ‘the HNB Club’, were present today at the MoU Ceremony.
The renovation of a village tank or ‘wewa’, repairing a rural road, improving infrastructure facilities in the village school, the refurbishment of the Raja Maha Viharaya temple, and a water purification project are the projects undertaken by Gammadda.
“Many millions of Sri Lankans have to walk for miles just to get access to clean drinking water,” Chevaan Daniel, the Group Director of the Capital Maharaja Group said.
He pointed out that major economic problems mean nothing to villagers and that they just want clean drinking water, to send their kids to decent schools and to wake up the next day with their home intact.
“These are simple but incredibly important situations that Gammadda attempts to address,” the Group Director emphasized.
Jonathan Alles, the managing director and Chief Executive Officer of Hatton National Bank, said it is a blessing to be part of the initiative.
“This unbelievable project conceptualizing this philanthropic investment into a village that is in need, which is worthy of our time, effort, resources to think about and participate and partner and do what we really need to do,” Alles noted.
