Continuing in its tradition of spreading health, wellness, and goodness, among communities across the country, the team behind Union Assurance CSR initiatives were able to close out 2015 having influenced countless lives for the better.

In 2015, with the support of the Public Health Department of the Colombo Municipal Council and the Public Health Inspector, UA organized 60 programmes to increase awareness regarding Thalassemia, and 20 programmes to spread awareness regarding Dengue. Special programmes targeting schools were also conducted and in order to increase awareness among school children the “Dengone,” a video game that provides information in a fun and enjoyable manner was developed in 2014.

During the year 2015, the Company launched Union Manushyathwaya, in order to consolidate all community outreach programmes and conduct them in a more organized and effective manner.

To coincide with this launch, UA conducted 9 diabetes screening camps as part of an island wide campaign to raise awareness and prevent the spread of this debilitating disease. The programme reached over 200,000 people through direct interactions and distribution of pamphlets.

“We are pleased to have been able to achieve some success through our CSR programmes in 2015. However, there is more to be done, and our aim is to continue the work we have started with increased vigour,” Director / Chief Executive Officer of Union Assurance, Mr. Dirk Pereira stated.

“We greatly appreciate the support we are receiving from a private organization in the Country to solve the pressing health concerns of today. Union Assurance is an exemplary organization. I hope that, through Union Manushyathwaya, Union Assurance will be able to do more to help the communities of the country,” stated Dr. Ruwan Wijeyamuni, Chief Medical Officer of the Public Health Department of the Colombo Municipal Council.

“Union Assurance has been a partner in the battle against Thalassemia for a long time. It cannot be expressed adequately how great the impact of these initiatives have been. I wish for them the best and hope that they continue to provide their invaluable support in the future in a greater way,” expressed Dr. J. M. Nilam, Child Specialist of the National Thalassemia Centre - Kurunegala.
