For Humanity Builds Hope through Housing Project 

First Capital Holdings PLC, in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka, proudly announces the successful completion of its CSR project aimed at providing access to safe and dignified housing for under-privileged families in the Bope-Poddala Division, Galle District. In a heartfelt ceremony attended by senior staff from both organizations and key government officials, two new homes were handed over to deserving families.

From First Capital, Manjula Mathews, Deputy Chairperson; Dilshan Wirasekara, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer; and Randinith Madanayake, AGM/Head of Marketing, attended the event. H.G. Kithmini Sadeepthika, Acting Divisional Secretary of Bope-Poddala DS Division, and representatives from Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka, including Yu Hwa Li, National Director; Eng. T. Kaandeepan, Senior Construction Manager; and P. Suresh, Technical Officer, were also present.

The “First Capital Housing Project” was initiated in the Galle District with a mission to provide safe and stable homes for low-income families. The first four homes were constructed for K. H. Achala Udayanthi, G. W. Siripala, H. G. Krishanthi, and K. H. Vipulasena, under the technical supervision of Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka.

Emphasizing eco-friendly practices, the homes have been built using Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEB), promoting climate-appropriate construction. This initiative not only aims to improve living conditions but also considers the environmental impact, marking a step towards promoting sustainable development practices.

Dilshan Wirasekara, Managing Director/CEO of First Capital Holdings PLC, expressed his thoughts on the project stating, “We are proud to have partnered with Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka on this project that is very close to our hearts. Our greater vision is to empower the communities around us. Through this partnership, now on its third year, we have been able to successfully complete six homes for deserving families. We appreciate the support of local authority officials and the ongoing efforts of Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka in uplifting our communities.”

Yu Hwa Li, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka stated, “This partnership with First Capital has been instrumental in empowering these families and transforming their lives for the better. Stable housing is a fundamental need, and far too many in our communities lack it. We are incredibly grateful to First Capital for stepping forward and creating this impactful partnership.”

“Words can’t express how grateful I am for this house. It’s more than just shelter for my family, it’s a symbol of a new beginning. We finally have a safe place to build our future together. This is a dream come true.” – M. G. Rohan Chaminda, a son from one of the beneficiary families.
