People
Health Access to basic health facilities is paramount for human development in countries such as ours. We believe the private sector must play its role in developing health facilities and have undertaken a series of programs to maintain wards at hospitals. We have also conducted annual blood donation program since 2003 targeting hospitals island wide this project has enabled us to donate over 800 pints of blood to society.

Basic Needs Irrigation is a primary need but one that many Sri Lankan have little access to. We have undertaken many projects island wide to develop irrigation especially in marginalized areas and have carried out more than15 projects to provide drinking water for schools, temples and communities. Among our major drinking water projects are those that supplied to Veddha at Kotabakina and Gurukumbura School at Mahiyanganaya. Social Development Projects We believe that the private sector as a significant role to play in supporting the state especially when the country faces tragedies wrought by nature. As a socially conscious company, Loadstar has over the years come to assistance of many communities left homeless and in despair by floods. We took on the responsibility of rebuilding the Deniyaya Village, following severe floods there in 2003. Our contribution included the construction of 45 fully furnished homes, as well as building community infrastructure such as community centres and playgrounds. We also helped 7 families around the Opatha area who were affected by the floods in 2005, When the devastating tsunami washed over the shores of Sri Lanka in 2004, Loadstar was one of the companies to respond immediately our employees were at ground zero in the immediate aftermath, clearing debris, providing basic necessities including shelter, food, medicines, sanitary facilities and assisting in the recovery effort. We committed ourselves immediately to the long term rebuilding of Sri Lanka.

We set up 7 refugee camps in Weligama and facilitated their management while also conducting medical camps in Tsunami affected regions. We have also extended our assistance to the Sahanaya Institute in Kaluthara which counsels and assists those who have been affected by the Tsunami. We have completed the construction of over 600 homes for families left destitute in the South of the country.
