Welcome to PINA Organisation Sri Lanka

The P I N A Organisation is a humanitarian, development-aimed organisation, functioning in Sri Lanka since 1988

We help people in need, irrespective of ethnicity, religion, age or social standing. Our vision is to provide all Sri Lankans with a better standard of living and to lend a hand to families who are facing hard times and to those who cannot help themselves. All members of P I N A work voluntarily and free of charge.

Our mission statement is simply to never give up hope. Today P I N A has seen more than 30 years of successful growth and operations in Sri Lanka. There were late nights, obstacles and sheer impossible tasks to overcome, but there were also tears of joy, accomplishments and moments we will take on for the rest of our lives. The knowledge, that we have contributed, even in the smallest way, to the betterment and development of Sri Lanka, is not only a satisfying thought, but a deed that speaks for us as humans and who we are at heart.

We believe in helping one person at a time, hoping that in the end, we contribute to the social development of society as a whole.

Ongoing projects

Many Sri Lankans suffer health complications and death as the result of chronic kidney disease (also known as CKD) each year. The north and east of the island are the worst affected areas as the people living there are reliant on agricultural produce (rice farming in particular).

A few years ago, CKD was identified in these areas; however, the root cause of its prevalence in this region has not been clearly explained to date. Unfiltered water is one of the main causes for CKD. Only about 35% of the island's population have access to the public water network, the remainder (particularly those in rural areas) are reliant on ground water, which can have fatal health implications. These local regions are therefore in urgent need of water filer systems.

The PINA Organisation together with the Sri Lankan Navy has successfully completed 2 RO Plants (Water Filter Systems) in Padaviya (January 2017) and Minneriya (November 2017). Each RO Plant (Reverse Osmosis) filters 10,000 litres of water per day. The PINA Organisation takes over the costs of constructing and installing of the water filter system, whilst the Sri Lankan Navy takes over the construction.

In 2018 PINA Organisation celebrates 30 years of humanitarian service for the people of Sri Lanka and the 3rd and 4th RO Plants funded by PINA Organisation was opened on 29th october, 2018 in Sigiriya. In the coming years PINA Organisation will fund more RO Plants to improve the lives of people living in CKD affected areas.
