Caring Hands for Lankan expatriates, senior citizens

Caring Hands Lanka (Pvt) Ltd, a unique company which concentrates on looking after the needs of Sri Lankan expatriates based abroad with local interests here, has begun operations, in what it says is a first-of-its-kind in the world.

The company will take care of the property, business and personal interests on behalf of these expatriates, so that they are free from these worries and burdens thousands of miles away, CEO of the company Suresh Murugaser told the Business Times. The company will also look after the needs of a growing number of senior citizens in Sri Lanka living alone while their children are abroad. It will also act as agents and assist in all business and personal matters including personal and family emergencies. All these services will be provided at a fee of US$ 40 per month with an additional US$500 refundable deposit.

Another service the company is providing is ancillary services like basic plumbing, electrical work, running errands for busy executives, or retired people. These activities include banking, paying telephone, electricity and water bills doing grocery shopping, delivering and collecting gas cylinders, laundry or medicines at a fee of Rs.1,000 per month plus Rs. 400 per minimum two hour stint, he said.
