DSI Tyres donates Multipara Monitors worth Rs 4.8M to Gampaha DGH
Continuing its drive towards social responsibility projects and solidifying its position as a pioneer in tyre industry, DSI Tyres recently donated Rs 4.8 million worth of Philips Multipara Monitors to the Gampaha District General Hospital (DGH).
The donation was made on the initiative of Ranatunga Rajapakse, Managing Director of DSI Samson Group (Pvt) Ltd. Coming at a time when the country is battling virulent strains of COVID19 it was felt timely and relevant.
The Monitors were handed over through the intervention of Dr Shiran Dias at a ceremony presided by M. H. Wasantha (General Manager of Human Resources at Samson Rubber Products), Amitha Kumara Lokuwithanage (Assistant General Manager of Human Resources) as well as Dr Saman Senanayake, Dr Mahesh and Dr Ileperuma.
The Multipara Monitor indicates Heart rate, Central venous pressure, Non-invasive blood pressure, ECG, Oxygen saturation (SpO2) and Partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2). These monitors are crucial to Intensive Care Unit and contribute much towards the national campaign against virulent diseases such as COVID-19. The donation was thus felt as a much needed intervention by hospital officials.

Indeed, at DSI Tyres we have ensured the health and safety of our employees, along with their job security,” stated Ranatunga Rajapakse.
