The COVID-19 pandemic has severely compromised the wellbeing of our nation and overwhelmed the health services in the country. Despite constraints and difficulties encountered by the health services, they provide a yeoman service to the nation by treating patients inflicted with this virus, screening potential carriers and taking precautions to contain the spreading of the virus without sufficient supply of PPE, ventilators etc. Therefore, we opine that, as responsible professionals, the Sri Lankan Quantity Surveyors have to rise in unison to support the health services in this hour of need.

The Institute has pledged a contribution of Rs. 250,000.00 to set-up a fund to purchase the equipment and other essentials needed by the health services and appeals the Sri Lankan Quantity Surveyors fraternity’s fervent support to this cause by making their contributions to one of the under mentioned bank accounts as appropriate mentioning “Donation for Health Services”:
