Swiftly responding to the needs of the most affected in the recent tragic Easter Sunday attacks in the country, Pan Asia Bank’s Negombo branch joined hands with the Red Cross Society of Negombo to organize a donation drive to benefit the victims of Katuwapitiya, which lies in close proximity to the branch. Pan Asia Bank generously donated a variety of dry rations, drinking water, and other urgently needed items to victims of Katuwapitiuya, for whom lives changed in an instant that fateful Sunday. More than 75 families in the Negombo area alone are reported to have lost their daily income as a result of death and injury from the attacks. The much-needed dry rations donated by the Bank on the request of the Red Cross Society of Negombo, eased the immediate needs of the victims.
