DSI Beat, in partnership with Manusath Derana, distributed over 2,000 pairs of slippers to the children of 20 schools in Kilinochchi.

The Northern province of the island recently fell victim to floods that left many homeless and destitute. Thus, in order to alleviate the circumstances of the victims of the floods DSI Beat joined forces with Manusath Derana in an initiative that was aided by the 57th Division of the Sri Lanka Army. The Distributor for DSI in Jaffna, Mr. Jeyaraza of Super Shoes Distributors also played a part in the distribution of Beat rubber slippers to the victims

“We were glad to have DSI Beat join us in this endeavour. The people of the North have been placed in a very difficult situation due to the recent floods. Many have been forced to leave their homes and belongings, and as a result now find themselves in most unfortunate circumstances. We at Manusath Derana see it as our duty and privilege to aid our brothers and sisters of the North in their time of need. We are very grateful to DSI Beat for coming forward to donate footwear to over 2,000 children in Kilinochchi,” said the Deputy General Manager of Marketing at Manusath Derana, Mahesh Jayawardena.

Managing Director of D. Samson and Sons (Pvt) Ltd., Thusitha Rajapaksa said, “The needs of the people have always been the top priority of our organisation. We believe in the importance of giving something back to society from the organisation’s income.

“We at DSI were happy to be a part of the CSR initiative by Manusath Derana to provide DSI Beat Rubber Slippers to the people of Kilinochchi as they endure all kinds of post-flood related difficulties.

‘‘We thank Manusath Derana for inviting us to be a part of this worthy project and the 57th Division of the Sri Lanka Army for facilitating the distribution of the supplies,” he said.
