SL receives COVID-19 medical equipment from Singapore
The Sri Lanka High Commission in Singapore facilitated the handover of a consignment of 50 BiPAP machines and eight ventilators donated by the Temasek Foundation of Singapore to support Sri Lanka’s efforts to contain COVID-19.
The donation was made at a symbolic ceremony held at the Foreign Ministry in Colombo.
Foreign Secretary Admiral Prof. Jayanath Colombage handed over the donation to State Minister Prof. Channa Jayasumana and Secretary of the State Ministry Dr. R.M.S.K. Rathnayake.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the Temasek Foundation has made significant donations of medical equipment to Sri Lanka.
The donation was made by the Foundation following a request by High Commissioner to Singapore Sashikala Premawardena to Temasek Foundation International's CEO Benedict Cheong.
They previously donated one million Livinguard face masks, which were produced in Sri Lanka, for the use of frontline health workers.
