Unilever VIVA supports over 500 families this avurudu


Unilever Sri Lanka’s malted food drink brand VIVA,recently donated Unilever products and dry rations to help over 500 families in Dambana, celebrate the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

With hopes of helping those who are going through hardship during these unprecedented times, the brand’s ‘Piripun Rasa Avuruddak’ initiative coincided with the dawn of the New Year, where VIVA visited the rural community of Dambana at the Dambana Primary School, distributing Unilever products and dry rations to over 500 families with the blessings of Veddha Chief, Uruwarige Wannila Aththo.

Commenting on the initiative, Milinda Weerasinghe, Category Head – Nutrition and Head of Unilever Food Solutions of Unilever Sri Lanka said, “VIVA holds true as a compassionate, family brand that has nourished millions of Sri Lankans for generations. This is why, having understood the current situation, we took Avurudu to those who could not celebrate it as they usually do, addressing their needs and bringing families closer together. It was also a privilege for us to join hands with Swarnavahini during this crucial time and have them include the Dambana community in their Live Avurudu Programme.”
