P&S Extends Clean Water Initiative to Rural Communities Under “Manu Mehewara”..

Perera & Sons Bakers (Private) Limited (P&S), Sri Lanka’s largest and most-reputed quick service restaurant chain, has completed yet another inspiring initiative to uplift the living standards of rural communities. Reflecting its 120-year heritage of delighting Sri Lankans, and its strong commitment to corporate social responsibility, this time P&S extended a helping hand to the rural community of Pahala Konkadawala, Weerapokuna Village in the Kurunegala District. This resulted in yet another collaboration with the Sri Lanka Navy, to install and unveil a state-of-the-art Reverse Osmosis (RO) plant, ensuring access to clean and safe drinking water for the villagers.

Serving approximately 1,000 villagers daily, the RO plant now stands as a symbol hope, enhancing the daily wellbeing of the community. Spearheaded by P&S, this initiative marks a significant milestone in addressing the fundamental need for clean water in rural Sri Lanka. Conducted under P&S’s philanthropic arm, “Manu Mehewara”, this marks the fourth RO plant donation by P&S, following successful installations at institutions like the Trincomalee Base Hospital and Trincomalee District Hospital.

Mr. Gihan Perera, Managing Director at P&S, expressed his gratitude to the Sri Lanka Navy and his support for the villagers saying, “Through initiatives like this, we reaffirm our dedication to our fellow Sri Lankans. It is an honour to have been able to make a genuine difference in the lives of the villagers. I also take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Sri Lanka Navy for collaborating with us in this regard, and in past efforts of a similar nature. I am also very glad to note that this initiative aligns with UN SDG 6 – clean water and sanitation for all. We remain committed to looking out for our communities and look forward to more such efforts in the future.”

P&S’s philanthropic initiatives, under “Manu Mehewara”, encompass various sectors, including education, healthcare, environmental sustainability, and social welfare. With a rich heritage dating back to 1902, P&S continues to leave an indelible mark on the hearts, minds, and taste-buds of all Sri Lankans, embodying the essence of a homegrown business that cares.
