SANASA Life and General Insurance partner to help frontlines
A simple ceremony to hand over the face shields was held in the presence of SANASA Life Insurance Chief Executive Officer Indika Kiriwandeniya, SANASA General Insurance Chief Executive Officer Wasantha Perera, members of the Police as well as officials of the Colombo Municipal Council.
SANASA Life Insurance Chief Executive Officer Indika Kiriwandeniya said, “At SANASA Life, we have always deeply appreciated the tireless efforts of the frontline heroes such as the healthcare workers, Police, Armed Forces, and municipal council workers in the battle against the pandemic. That is why we’re giving them the equipment to help them to stay safe as they carry out their duties through these difficult times.”
SANASA General Insurance Chief Executive Officer Wasantha Perera said, “We are happy to tie up with our parent company SANASA Life Insurance to make this a successful initiative by helping those who are risking their lives to protect us from this pandemic. As a responsible corporate citizen, we are ready to step forward to help protect the people and minimize the spread of the virus.”
Earlier this year, SANASA Life Insurance Company made history by becoming Sri Lanka’s first-ever company to reinstate the life insurance policies of over 21,000 policyholders. These life insurance policies had lapsed as the policyholders were unable to pay their premiums due to their financial struggles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. SANASA Life Insurance stepped forward to help these policyholders by allocating several million rupees to settle all pending premiums.
As a result, these customers’ life insurance policies are now reactivated and they have the necessary protection to move forward with their lives and businesses as the country gradually emerges from the pandemic situation.
SANASA Life Insurance has been in the field of insurance in Sri Lanka for nearly 30 years.
