The BMICH, Sri Lanka’s most recognizable and iconic landmark, recently organized a Blood Donation campaign in commemoration and honor of its Founders late Prime Minister S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike, late Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike and of former Cabinet Minister and Speaker of Parliament Anura Bandaranaike on their 59th, 18th and 10th death anniversaries. An alms giving was also held as part of the commemoration.
“Our Founders were not only committed to Sri Lanka but also to the world. It is our hope that our activities of merit will continue to honor them. Undoubtedly, this campaign will have a very real and direct impact on a large number of people who are in need” said Sunil Dissanayake, Director/CE of the BMICH.
With hundreds of well-wishers and BMICH staff signing up, the scope of this campaign was truly unprecedented. Importantly, it also marked the dedication to service embodied by two of Sri Lanka’s greatest national figures, the late S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike – Sri Lanka’s fourth Prime Minister who was widely regarded as an international statesman and the late Sirimavo Bandaranaike, the modern world’s first female head of state.
