Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Colombo: Providing a vital social service to tired travelers en-route to their hometowns located across the country for the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, Mobitel initiated a project that provided these travelers access to clean drinking water for the 2nd time at key points in their journey. 

Distribution points were set up at the Fort Main Bus Halt (opposite the Bo tree) on the 11th of April and at the Fort Railway Station and the Maharagama Expressway Bus Halt on the 12th of April 2017. This initiative that provided travelers relief from the heat was especially appreciated by those who carried a limited supply of water as they embarked on their journeys.
