As part of its wide-ranging, empathetic response to the Covid-19 crisis, Ideal Motors (Pvt) Ltd has donated a Mahindra Ambulance valued at approximately Rs. 10 million to the Madura Vithana Foundation on September 5.

The fully-equipped ambulance was handed over by Nalin Welgama, the Founder and Chairman of the Ideal Group to Member of Parliament, Madura Vithana, Founder of the Foundation. The vehicle was donated primarily to enable the Foundation to support the vaccination of persons over 60 years of age and the disabled in the Colombo District.

The donation also coincided with the birthday of Nalin Welgama, the Founder and Chairman of the Ideal Group which was commemorated on September 5. This ambulance will also support the country’s efforts in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and provide health services to affected citizens expeditiously.

As a company deeply committed and recognized for its series of corporate social welfare initiatives, Ideal Motors has relentlessly provided assistance during these unprecedented times, supporting vulnerable segments of the population and donating vital equipment.

Ideal Motors relief programme for Covid-19 included donating washing machines and waste bins to the Base Hospital Mulleriyawa which was an urgent requirement, presenting six laptops to the Cardiology Unit of the Colombo National Hospital which were crucial for recording patients’ data.

Ideal Motors also provided the Ministry of Health a stock of personal protective clothing and accessories required for health service frontline staff which was handed over by Welgama to Ministry officials at the Gangarama Temple in Colombo.

Commenting on the company’s social welfare programmes, Welgama, said, “Founders Day is a special event in the calendar of our company as September 5th marks the inauguration of our business. Over the years the company has engaged in countless social service programmes, however, we have not sought any publicity for our work.”

“The pandemic has affected not only our country but has caused catastrophic results for the whole world. I believe business leaders need to come forward and support the nation during these challenging times. I request all corporations and their leaders to come together and instead of blaming the government, look inwards to see what we can do for our nation.”

MP Madura Vithanage said, “We are extremely thankful to Ideal Motors and Nalin Welgama, in providing an ambulance to the Vithana Foundation. This noble deed will help transport all Public Health Inspection Officers in the Colombo District. We aim to coordinate with the police and the local authorities and ensure that those over 60 years old and unable to go to vaccination centers can be visited at home and vaccinated.”
