0 50

Allianz Lanka believes that Sri Lanka’s children, the future of the nation, deserve to grow up in a safe environment, protected from life’s challenges and adversities, so they may pursue their dreams with confidence. 

Allianz Lanka is accomplishing this through the donation of 1,200 child safety helmets at various locations across its network. Accordingly, child safety helmets were donated at 24 Allianz locations islandwide on November 23, 25 and 28 2022. This effort will contribute to Allianz Lanka’s “Societal” initiatives, through which it hopes to achieve social upliftment and increased social inclusion.

The main event to raise awareness and launch the programme was held at Allianz Lanka’s branch in Kalutara, where 50 safety helmets were donated to children in the area, alongside a small ceremony and awareness programme. Selected schoolchildren studying in grades 1-5 were presented with safety helmets by Allianz Lanka, under the aegis of the Sri Lanka Police. 

Working together, the Sri Lanka Police and Allianz Lanka will also carry out an ongoing effort to raise awareness about proper helmet use and standards, along with road safety basics. CEO, Country Manager at Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd, Alan Smee, together with CMO, Mangala Bandara and other senior members of the Allianz Lanka management team were present at the event in Kalutara. 

Allianz Insurance Lanka Limited Chief Marketing Officer Mangala Bandara said, “Everyday, we help millions of people in Sri Lanka and around the world, protect their most precious things in life, and few things are more precious than our children. It is, therefore, unfortunate to see that children have become a very vulnerable segment on Sri Lanka’s roads. Every few days we hear of fatalities and or serious injuries, while road incidents involving children occur on a daily basis. As a responsible corporate citizen, and an insurer of choice, we believe we have a moral obligation and social commitment to help protect our precious children.”
