Amana Takaful Insurance has carried out several community initiatives within the past few weeks, in the spirit of upholding its core mission, commitment and responsibility, towards mutuality and solidarity amidst these trying times.
Amana Takaful Insurance has extended its support to several individuals and families who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those affected by the recent flooding due to monsoon rains. The series of CSR initiatives kick started with the company donating vital medical equipment and supplies – including PPE Kits and Non-Rebreather Masks – to Base Hospital Mawanella and Kegalle General Hospital, contributing to the country’s fight against COVID-19.
Shortly after, in commemoration of World Blood Donor Day that is observed on 14 June each year, Amana partnered with National Blood Transfusion Service Sri Lanka (NBTS) to pay gratitude to all blood donors who visited the National Blood Centre – for their selfless act despite the ongoing pandemic and adverse weather conditions. Refreshments were provided for every donor who visited the facility.
Subsequently, Amana Takaful Insurance also offered financial assistance to over 200families in the Wellampitiya area –primarily targeting daily wage earners whose families have been adversely impacted by the travel restrictions and the torrential floods alike. The event witnessed the participation of the Wellampitiya residents along with the religious leaders of the community. Additionally, Amana Takaful Insurance sponsored essential food items and dry rations that were distributed by St. Carmel Church Palliyawatta to the flood victims of Wattala.
All in all, Amana Takaful Insurance has been able to reach out and contribute to the lives of over 500 families within the month of June.
Chief Sales Officer of Amana Takaful Insurance, Suresh Basnayake stated: “Caring for our communities has always been, and will always be our priority, and we will forever strive to uplift the less fortunate and help our fellow Sri Lankans in need. When we made a commitment ‘To Every Sri Lankan as One’ earlier this year with a refreshed brand identity, we pledged to see it through in the spirit of mutuality and solidarity.”
