Protection and pleasure are now available at the click of a button, thanks to a delightful tie-up between Quickee.lk and Durex, to deliver Durex products at customers’ doorsteps without having to leave homes.
The unique partnership kicks off with an exciting promotion in the run up to Valentine’s Day. Deliveries of Durex Performa, Fetherlite and Extra Safe will be undertaken by Quickee with FREE delivery for the first 100 orders within the Quickee delivery grid that covers Colombo 1-15 and immediate suburbs, within the hour!
The promotion will run for one month from February 11. Customers can order via; www.quickee.lk / call 0117-324-325 / WhatsApp 077QUICKEE for orders from 9am – 3am 365days a year!
Amorous couples need not delay their pleasure any longer and can enjoy instant gratification (within an hour while they set the mood) with Quickee’s promise – ‘Convenience. Delivered’ – to ensure they enjoy safe and pleasurable sex without having to rush to a store or having to end a promising evening with an anti-climax.
This strategic partnership with Durex by Reckitt Benckiser is the first high-profile corporate partnership for EFL 3PL after its recent management takeover of Quickee.lk, which marks a new business vertical for the reputed 3PL company.
Commenting further, Leroy, Chief Growth Officer, EFL 3PL and Quickee.lk said, “We are excited about this first official partnership with Durex since the 3PL takeover, mainly because of the brand compatibility to deliver gratification without delay. The tongue-in-cheek and youthfulness persona of the promotion makes it a match made in heaven, and I believe it truly unlocks brand potential to achieve the positioning we want for the Quickee.lk brand. Whether it is a ‘quickee’ that customers seek or long periods of pleasure, this promotion fulfills both fantasies.”
Adding further, Mariam, Founder, Quickee.lk Delivery Solutions said, “This partnership with Durex reignites the true spirit of Quickee.lk which is and has always been a trend-setter by going beyond the traditional ecommerce models by offering Rapid Express Delivery, within the hour, to brands and businesses who are used to having only 2-5-day delivery, thereby enabling them to exploit last mile as not only a necessity but a strategic advantage – by offering that much more value to their end consumers.”
Inspired by its tagline, ‘Love Sex, Durex’, the Durex is proactively raising its voice against sexual stigmas, taboos and non-inclusive attitudes with the aim of showcasing the ‘positive reality’ of modern-day sex. By normalising home delivery of condoms, just like food, clothing or electronics, Quickee.lk too is demonstrating that it can deliver almost everything in quick time. More importantly, it is delivered ‘discreetly’, so nosy neighbours have no idea of how you plan to spend your day or night!
Explaining further, Amaya, Brand Manager, Durex said, “We live in a time where everything is delivered to our doorsteps within hours – so we thought why not condoms too? The aim of this partnership is to enable users to order condoms when in urgent situations directly to them anywhere in Colombo, within 60 minutes. We firmly believe that this service will become highly successful in Sri Lanka and that consumers will find it to be really helpful. We hope this service we are launching in partnership with Quickee.lk will benefit many condom emergencies!”
Having safe and consensual sex – wherever you want and whenever your want – contributes towards the overall health and wellbeing of people, and even more so, during the stressful times brought about by the global pandemic.

Growing importance of training for nurses taking care of patients with NCDs
To keep pace with the rapid expansion and increasing complexity of elderly home healthcare, training needs of home healthcare nurses must be identified and subsequent training programs implemented. English Nursing Care conducts training sessions on a weekly basis covering a variety of care needs for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as diabetes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) record that NCDs are estimated to account for 75% of total deaths in Sri Lanka.
Furthermore, according to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health “although people are living longer, they live more years suffering from disease and disability, mainly from NCDs; life expectancy at birth in Sri Lanka is 74.9 years but healthy life expectancy at birth is only 67.0 years.” This has a significant impact on quality of life.
English Nursing Care Sri Lanka works towards improving the quality of life of the elderly living with NCD’s by training nurses on the most advanced and developed methodologies brought through years of experience internationally and locally. Being responsible for the well-being of your loved ones is pivotal in the service they provide.
SriLankan Airlines welcomes Indian delegation to Sri Lanka
SriLankan Airlines in a bid to recommence Indian tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka under the proposed bio-bubble tourist arrival concept successfully completed a familiarization tour for Indian media and travel trade professionals recently. A delegation of tour operators, agents, and senior editors representing influential media institutions concluded a familiarization tour in Sri Lanka.
The delegation spent six nights and seven days touring the country while being subjected to mandatory PCR testing and other health guidelines imposed by the Ministry of Health. Upon arriving in Sri Lanka, the delegation toured the most sought-after local tourist sites including Dambulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, and Bentota. The tour was initiated by SriLankan Holidays and the ground arrangements for the tour were handled by Jetwing Travels, Aitken Spence, Sri Lanka Convention Bureau (SLCB), and Hamoos Travels.
The main purpose of their participation in this fam tour was to restore confidence in visiting Sri Lanka, especially among the Indian tourists to provide them in-depth knowledge on how the country’s tourism industry operates under the bio-bubble concept. Apart from visiting various places, they experienced the stringent health and safety protocols adopted by the country in resuming tourism under the “bio-bubble” concept allowing tourists to roam around without mixing with the local population.
During their stay here, the delegation was hosted for a virtual meet-and-greet with SriLankan Airlines Chairman Ashok Pathirage, Chief Executive Officer Vipula Gunathilleka, and Head of Worldwide Sales & Distribution Dimuthu Tennakoon. The discussion focused on the airline’s operations to India, vaccination and quarantine travel arrangements between the two countries, current safety measures, and guidelines pertaining to the bio-bubble concept. They lauded the effort taken by officials to make their trip a memorable one.
The Indian delegation was highly impressed with the opportunities they were given to travel and explore the country and its exclusive holiday prospects for the enthusiastic traveller. This fam tour was a manifestation of the immense potential of Sri Lanka as a post-covid travel destination enticing the Indian traveller.
