People’s Bank will continue its annual tradition by organising celebrations to mark the 72nd Independence Day of Sri Lanka recently. The main event to mark this occasion will be held on 4th February 2020 from 9.30am onwards at the Castle Street Hospital for Women in Borella under the patronage of People’s Bank Chairman Sujeewa Rajapakse and Chief Executive Officer/General Manager Rasitha Gunawardana.
Under the theme “Nidahase Upatha” (Birth of Freedom), every child born in the country during the week 1st to 7th February 2020 will be presented with an Isuru Udana Gift Certificate worth Rs.2,000/- by People’s Bank.
The program was launched in 2006 to instill pride towards the Motherland and encourage parents to have a goal in mind while planning for the future. A notable feature of this program is where the People’s Bank staff visit the newborn child and parents at the respective hospital to personally hand over the gift certificate. Parents can present the gift certificate at the nearest People’s Bank branch and open an Isuru Udana Children’s Savings Account for the child.
In addition to the Castle Street Hospital for Women, the Bank has made arrangements to carry out the Birth of Freedom program in hospitals located in Ampara, Anuradhapura, Badulla, Batticaloa, Galle, Gampaha, Hambanthota, Jaffna, Kaluthara, Kandy, Kegalle, Matale, Moneragala, Nuwara Eliya, Polonnaruwa, Puttalam, Ratnapura, Trincomalee, Wanni and Colombo.
